Sorry for the late reply.

From the picture, you are on your way to level 0, which would issue the
final shutdown command, but you are not quite there yet.

If you add a printk() to the reboot syscall, then I wouldn't expect you
to see it. (something like that):

diff --git a/kernel/reboot.c b/kernel/reboot.c
index c4d472b7f1b42..19bc35bc0cda0 100644
--- a/kernel/reboot.c
+++ b/kernel/reboot.c
@@ -314,6 +314,7 @@ SYSCALL_DEFINE4(reboot, int, magic1, int, magic2, unsigned int, cmd,
char buffer[256];
int ret = 0;

+ pr_err("%s(%d)CMD: %lx\n", __func__, __LINE__, cmd);
/* We only trust the superuser with rebooting the system. */
if (!ns_capable(pid_ns->user_ns, CAP_SYS_BOOT))
return -EPERM;
If you add "ignore_loglevel initcall_debug" to the command line then you
should see the init callbacks of each driver. But there will be nothing
on your shutdown (as I expect it).

The "task X blocked for more than 120 secs" is part of the hung task
detector. With the "ignore_loglevel" above you should be able to see the
callchain of the task. I suspect that the task poked the cd-drive which
isn't answering. So from detector's point of view, the task issued a
system call which appears to hang an makes no progress.

The hung message is not workqueue related. It is the task `halt' that
makes no progress. There is not stall of the workqueue as far as the
system can tell.
The two boot options, I suggested above, may reveal additional
information that are printed but suppressed due to the loglevel.

My guess now is that maybe shutting down wifi also paused the AHCI
controller which makes no progress now. So booting without cdrom/disk
should not cause any problems.

Could you please:
- try booting with "ignore_loglevel initcall_debug" and see if
additional information is printed on the console.

- Remove cd / ATA-disk to check if anything else causes a stall. As by
your report you only mentioned those two (and if I see it correctly,
you rootFS is on nvme so removing the disk might be doable).

- Could you remove the Wifi (just the driver, no the physical hw) to see
if it makes any difference?
