We have wmb() in the ioat2_tx_submit_unlock (before submitting work to dma,
but after init_completion), shouldn't it make race between interrupt handler
and our waiting thread impossible?

I also believe I traced x->done in the do_wait_for_common
before and after 'timeout = action(timeout);' and it was as expected:
0 - before and 1 - after.

Yes, I also thought that's the reason of the race, because tasklet is in
the queue, but it is disabled (on my weird trace I don't see the interrupt,
so I abandoned this idea).
But it seems to be possible only when we issue dma, wait_for_completion_timeout
waits and times out, we do cleanup (tasklet_disable), we get interrupt and
do tasklet_schedule. But (again) I don't see timeout and
interrupt on my trace (could it be corrupted?).

Despite all this theory, the patch below (which just replaces tasklet_disable
with tasklet_kill in the cleanup routines) seems to be working (did about
40 reboots and didn't see the issue).

I think replacing tasklet_disable with tasklet_kill is reasonable anyway, so
should I send the patch rebased on 3.13 with comments or you'll take care
and merge it into mainline and stable yourself?
