The second issue consists of what Hans described + an occassional hang on boot
for resume from hibernation to disk.

The second issue is still unfixed as of 4.16 + [PATCH v2] block: Change a
rcu_read_{lock,unlock}_sched() pair into rcu_read_{lock,unlock}() vom Bart Van
Asche, which Jens Axboe accepted¹.


Currently compiling 4.16.1, but I do not expect a change, as there is nothing
about blk-mq subsystem in the changelog as far as I saw.

Will update

[Bug 199077] [Possible REGRESSION, 4.16-rc4] Error updating SMART data during
runtime and boot failures with blk_mq_terminate_expired in backtrace

as well about the current state. The bug report contains a screenshot of one
of the boot hangs. I had two more on Monday, but did not take the chance to
make another photo. I will do so next time in case its convenient enough and
compare whether it reveals anything more than my first photo.
