Agreed. I disabled CONFIG_SCSI_MQ_DEFAULT, but the problem is still seen
at least on one of my servers, so disabling it does not help, at least not
in my case.

If the problem is somehow related to CONFIG_SCSI_MQ_DEFAULT, you might
have to explicitly use a scsi drive (virtio-scsi-pci or similar) to
trigger its use in a VM.
