The usual assumption would be that wb_writeback() is looping or...

> [c00000036e3ebd30] [c0000000000fa6d4] worker_thread+0x284/0x500

...there is so much work being scheduled that worker_thread() cannot
keep up. If tracing locates such a loop, the usual trick is to
place a cond_resched_rcu_qs() somewhere in it (but of course not
where interrupts or preemption are disabled).

Tracing can help detect this. Or printk()s, for that matter. ;-)

Thanx, Paul
