Only a very specific libvirt acceptance test found this after a while
and it wasn't a customer it was caught by QA. The reporter said it
wasn't sure about how to reproduce this issue either, it happened once
in a while the backtrace was still enough to fix it for sure and then
it never happened again.

It's not because of virt but probably because of selinux+audit. This
is precisely why I thought once you enter LSM from the scheduler
atomic path the trouble starts as each LSM implementation of those
calls may crash or not crash.

Perhaps you didn't sandbox KVM inside selinux by default?

This is the lockup the patch I posted fixed for 3.10.
