We haven't got any lockup reports in our kernels (and we do carry a
variant of this patch), so it might be somehow specific to 3.10.

I will look into this whether it's still applicable or not, thanks a lot
for the pointer.

(and no, my testing of the patch I sent on current tree didn't produce any
hangs -- was there a reliable way to trigger it on 3.10?).
