IMHO, it is not clear. The log contains lockdep report. It does not mean
the deadlock really happened. The lockdep reports cyclic dependency but it
is not able to say if the related code chains might be called at the
same time in reality.

And this combination has signs of false positives. As I said, I think
that the serial console could not be registered by printk() before
serial8250_do_startup() has finished.

Also there are some unrelated messages after the last backtrace.

Finally. we would be able to see the messages only when panic() was
called and oops_in_progress set. And there is nothing about panic().

Raul, have the system really died or have you just seen the lockdep
report, please?

I do not feel brave enough to ack it today. But I am all for trying it
if anyone more familiar with the code is fine with it.
