If it helps the debug, the symptom seems to be that all interrupts get
turned off.  Neither the normal device completion interrupt nor the
completion watchdog timer fire before the self test timeout.  It seems
something else re-enables interrupts eventually, but we know they were
at least disabled for 3 seconds.  An unmatched spin_unlock_irq in an
async initialization path perhaps?
