Mostly, WARN_ON_ONCE happened in the perf code on our machines, we actually

don't care too much about the perf function works : )   Looks like we
have to find and

fix that perf bug before go on...

Well, you are lucky. So it's a problem in our printk implementation.

The deadlock path is:













Looks like it's introduced by this commit:


"drm/fb-helper: Add fb_deferred_io support"

    This adds deferred io support to drm_fb_helper.
    The fbdev framebuffer changes are flushed using the callback
    (struct drm_framebuffer *)->funcs->dirty() by a dedicated worker
    ensuring that it always runs in process context.
    For those wondering why we need to be able to handle atomic calling
    contexts: Both panic paths and cursor code and fbcon blanking can run
    from atomic. See
    commit bcb39af4486be07e896fc374a2336bad3104ae0a

        drm/udl: make usage as a console safer
    for where this was originally discovered.
