I was running into an issue with sshfs mounts and git bisect pointed to
the "futex: Fix inode life-time issue" commit as being the culprit. The
issue I was seeing is that an sshfs mount would succeed, but trying to
then access the mount ("ls -l /mnt" would be enough) would cause a soft
lock-up.

Applying this fix on top of next-20200310 fixes the issue for me, so:

Tested-by: Thierry Reding <treding@nvidia.com>

I still need that fix on next-20200311, but it'll probably show up in
linux-next sometime soon.
