Can you reliably reprodue this crash? And if so, with what config and
what kernel version.

One of the reasons why I had gone silent on this bug is that I've been
trying many, many configurations and configurations which reliably
reproduced on say, -rc4 would not reproduce on -rc5, and then I would
get a completely different set of results on -rc6. So I've been
trying to run a lot of different experiments to try to understand what
might be going on, since it seems pretty clear this must be a very
timing-sensitive failure.

I also found that the re-occrance went down significantly if I enabled
KASAN, and while it didn't go away, I wasn't able to get a KASAN
failure to trigger, either. Turning off CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING and a
*lot* of other debugging configs made the problem vanish in -rc4, but
that trick didn't work with -rc5 or -rc6.

Each time I discovered one of these things, I was about to post to the
e-mail thread, only to have a confirmation test run on a different
kernel version make the problem go away. In particular, your revert
helped with -rc4 and -rc6 IIRC, but it didn't help in -rc5.....

HOWEVER, thanks to a hint from a colleague at $WORK, and realizing
that one of the stack traces had virtio balloon in the trace, I
realized that when I switched the GCE VM type from e1-standard-2 to
n1-standard-2 (where e1 VM's are cheaper because they use
virtio-balloon to better manage host OS memory utilization), problem
has become, much, *much* rarer (and possibly has gone away, although
I'm going to want to run a lot more tests before I say that
conclusively) on my test setup. At the very least, using an n1 VM
(which doesn't have virtio-balloon enabled in the hypervisor) is
enough to unblock ext4 development.

Any chance your kvm/qemu configuration might have been using
virtio-ballon? Because other ext4 developers who have been using
kvm-xftests have not had any problems....

Hmm, so that this looks like some kind of RCU involvement? Some kind
of object that had been scheduled to be freed via RCU, but then got
freed before RCU cleanup happened?

The question then is what subsystem the object involved came from.
