That looks a lot like a recent issue we've had, see

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20191108131909.428842459@infradead.org/

The issue is caused by

67692435c411 ("sched: Rework pick_next_task() slow-path")

which 5.4-rc2 has (without the fix which landed in -rc7) but 4.14 really
shouldn't, unless the kernel you're using has had core scheduling somehow
backported to it?

I've only scraped the surface but I'd like to first ask: can you reproduce
the issue on v5.4 final ?
