This is a virtual machine with 4 vcores, but that shouldn't matter.

Creating one session is enough. I simply used the following command:
# ip l2tp add tunnel local 10.1.8.64 remote 10.1.8.32 udp_sport 1701 udp_dport 1701 tunnel_id 1 peer_tunnel_id 1
# ip l2tp add session tunnel_id 1 session_id 1 peer_session_id 1

Yes, enabling lockdep should let you reproduce the problem.

The issue goes away if the tunnel's socket is locked while calling
kernel_sock_ip_overhead():
+	lock_sock(tunnel->sock);
	kernel_sock_ip_overhead(tunnel->sock);
+	release_sock(tunnel->sock);
