Well he has do_coredump on stack, so he did something wrong in userspace? But
here he's just waiting on down_write. Unless there's some bug in do_coredump
that would lock for read and then for write, without an unlock in between?

> Looks like mmap_sem is locked for read:

So we have the python waiting for write, blocking all new readers (that's how
read/write locks work, right?), but itself waiting for a prior reader to finish.
The question is, who is/was the reader? You could search the mmap_sem or mm
address in the rest of the processes' stacks, and maybe you'll find him?
