This is not accurate anymore:

Commit 9b132fbe5419 (Add rcu user eqs exception hooks for async page
fault) adds rcu_irq_enter/exit() to kvm_async_pf_task_wait() to exit cpu
idle eqs when needed, to protect the code that needs use rcu. However,
we need to call the pair even if the function calls schedule(), as seen
from the above backtrace.

Can be fixed when committing.

Apart from that,
