Subject: regression (bisected): "modprobe parport_pc" hangs in current


I encountered a regression in current (post-5.0) mainline kernel which I
bisected to commit 1aec4211204d ("parport: daisy: use new parport device
model"). Running "modprobe parport_pc" hangs up:

tweed:~ # ps ax | grep modprobe
 1206 pts/0    D+     0:00 modprobe parport_pc
 1209 ?        S      0:00 /sbin/modprobe -q -- parport_lowlevel
 1211 pts/1    S+     0:00 grep modprobe

call_usermodehelper_exec+0xc7/0x140 is (build from commit 1aec4211204d)
line 583 in kernel/umh.c:

		retval = wait_for_completion_killable(&done);

and load_module+0xe6a/0x20f0 is in add_unformed_module(), line 3577 in

			err = wait_event_interruptible(module_wq,

Unfortunately I don't have version of crash able to deal with kernels as
new as these so I wasn't able to find more for now.

I have seen this both on real hardware and in a VM.
