Thanks again for testing.

But you do have CONFIG_DEBUG_ATOMIC_SLEEP set, which triggers a check in
__might_sleep() :

WARN_ONCE(current->state != TASK_RUNNING && current->task_state_change,

Relevant commit is 00845eb968ead28007338b2bb852b8beef816583
("sched: don't cause task state changes in nested sleep debugging")

Another relevant commit was 26cabd31259ba43f68026ce3f62b78094124333f
("sched, net: Clean up sk_wait_event() vs. might_sleep()") 

Before release_sock() could process the backlog in process context, only
lock_sock() could trigger the issue, so my fix at that time was commit
cb7cf8a33ff73cf638481d1edf883d8968f934f8 ("inet: Clean up
inet_csk_wait_for_connect() vs. might_sleep()")

I guess we need something else now, because the following :

static int dccp_wait_for_ccid(struct sock *sk, unsigned long delay)
        long remaining;

        prepare_to_wait(sk_sleep(sk), &wait, TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE);

can now process the socket backlog in process context from
release_sock(), so all GFP_KERNEL allocations might barf because of
TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE being used at that point.

sk_wait_event() probably also needs a fix.

Peter, any idea how this can be done ?

Thanks !
