Okay, I've recompiled the kernel without hardened usercopy:

[root@archlinux ~]# zgrep USERCOPY /proc/config.gz
CONFIG_X86_INTEL_USERCOPY=y
CONFIG_HAVE_HARDENED_USERCOPY_ALLOCATOR=y
# CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY is not set

and I cannot reproduce the issue anymore. I/O doesn't hang regardless of
how long I hammer it.

Eeeh? Maybe, this is a matter of some cleanup code path once the
warn/bug condition is hit with hardening enabled? I'm just guessing here
again.

Will work towards checking Linus' master branch now…

Regards,
Oleksandr
