Of course, looks like I've screwed up my bisect run on this so I'm still
taking a look.  It triggers for me with 'hdparm -B /dev/vda' but may
also depend on kernel configuration.

I started with the fedora rawhide config with a lot of debug on and
trimed it down with a localmodconfig run in the VM to speed up rebuilds.
