OK, thanks for debugging! So can you perhaps enable CONFIG_DEBUG_LIST
permanently in your kernel config and then bisect through the quota changes
in the merge? My guess is commit dabc8b20756 ("quota: fix dqput() to follow
the guarantees dquot_srcu should provide") might be the culprit given your
testing but I fail to see how given I don't expect any quotas to be used
during boot of your platform... BTW, there's also fixup: 869b6ea160
("quota: Fix slow quotaoff") merged last week so you could try testing a
kernel after this fix to see whether it changes anything.
