I looked at what git is doing just before panic and it's doing a lot of
lstat() syscalls on working tree.

I've attached a python script which reproduces the crash in about
10 seconds after it prepares testdir, git checkout origin/linux-5.0.y
reproduces it in about 2 seconds. I have to use multiprocessing Pool as
I couldn't reproduce the crash using ThreadPool, probably due to Python
GIL.

#!/usr/bin/env python3

from glob import glob
from os import lstat,mkdir
from random import randint
from os.path import isdir,exists
from pathlib import Path
from time import sleep
from subprocess import run
from multiprocessing import Pool

def drop_caches():
with open('/proc/sys/vm/drop_caches','w') as f:
f.write('3')

def enable_bfq():
with open('/sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler','w') as f:
f.write('bfq')

def sync():
run(('sync'))

def prepare_tree(name):
def populate(dir, depth=6):
if not depth:
return
for fname in range(1,20):
if randint(0,100) > 80:
dirname = "{}{}/".format(dir,fname)
mkdir(dirname)
populate(dirname, depth - 1)
continue
fname = "{}{}".format(dir, fname)
Path(fname).touch(exist_ok=True)

if not isdir(name):
mkdir(name)
if not name.endswith('/'):
name = '{}/'.format(name)
populate(name)



def traverse(dir):
drop_caches()
for inode in glob("{}/*".format(dir)):
if isdir(inode):
traverse(inode)
else:
lstat(inode)
if randint(0,10) > 6:
sleep(0)

def main():
nproc = 16
dirname = 'testdir'
if not exists(dirname):
prepare_tree(dirname)
sync()
drop_caches()
enable_bfq()
drop_caches()

with Pool(nproc) as pool:
dirs = (dirname,) * nproc
pool.map(traverse,dirs)

main()
