Hm, so the splat says this:

wakeups take the pi lock
pi lock holders take the rq lock
rq lock holders take the timer base lock (thanks psi)
timer base lock holders take the zone lock (thanks kasan)
problem: now a zone lock holder wakes up kswapd

right? And we can break the chain from the VM or from psi.

I cannot say one is clearly cleaner than the other, though. With kasan
allocating from inside the basic timer code, those locks leak out from
kernel/* and contaminate the VM locking anyway.

Do you think the rq->lock -> base->lock ordering is likely to cause
issues elsewhere?

Something like this below seems to pass the smoke test. If we want to
go ahead with that, I'd test it properly and send it with a sign-off.
