Preemption is disabled if and only if:

1. It's a CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT=n system
2. There's a lock associated with the sequence counter
3. That lock is also preemptible (e.g., a mutex)

In your case, the 3 condititions are OFF. You're on a PREEMPT_RT=y
kernel and the sequence counter in question has no lock associated.

As Sebastian summarized, the error is just "noisy" at this point.

We will of course need to find a (mainline-friendly) way to let the
lockdep splat go away for -rt kernels. But for now, it's not harmful.

Good luck,
