Peter, any new update on this issue?

Recently we also found a similar deadlock in our box, but with
3.4-stable kernel.

<0>[177064.149832] BUG: spinlock recursion on CPU#11, current: IVS_RcvReq1/16444
<0>[177064.149840]  lock: <NULL>/0xffff88017afd5640, .magic: dead4ead,
.owner: IVS_RcvReq1/16444, .owner_cpu: 14
