Yes, here is the qemu config:

-machine accel=kvm
-machine pc-i440fx-2.6,accel=kvm,usb=off,vmport=off,dump-guest-core=off,nvdimm
-cpu Haswell-noTSX
-m 12G,slots=3,maxmem=44G
-realtime mlock=off
-smp 8,sockets=2,cores=4,threads=1
-numa node,nodeid=0,cpus=0-3,mem=6G
-numa node,nodeid=1,cpus=4-7,mem=6G
-numa node,nodeid=2
-numa node,nodeid=3
-drive file=/virt/fedora-test.qcow2,format=qcow2,if=none,id=drive-virtio-disk1
-device virtio-blk-pci,scsi=off,bus=pci.0,addr=0x9,drive=drive-virtio-disk1,id=virtio-disk1,bootindex=1
-object memory-backend-file,id=mem1,share,mem-path=/virt/nvdimm1,size=16G,align=128M
-device nvdimm,memdev=mem1,id=nv1,label-size=2M,node=2
-object memory-backend-file,id=mem2,share,mem-path=/virt/nvdimm2,size=16G,align=128M
-device nvdimm,memdev=mem2,id=nv2,label-size=2M,node=3
-serial stdio
-display none

For the command list - I'm using WIP patches to ndctl/daxctl to add the
command I mentioned earlier. Using this command, I can reproduce the
lockdep issue. I thought I should be able to reproduce the issue by
onlining/offlining through sysfs directly too - something like:

node="$(cat /sys/bus/dax/devices/dax0.0/target_node)"
for mem in /sys/devices/system/node/node"$node"/memory*; do
echo "offline" > $mem/state

But with that I can't reproduce the problem.

I'll try to dig a bit deeper into what might be happening, the daxctl
modifications simply amount to doing the same thing as above in C, so
I'm not immediately sure what might be happening.

If you're interested, I can post the ndctl patches - maybe as an RFC -
to test with.
