Code could have an unbalanced preempt_disable() unrelated to locks.

Correct.

local_bh_enable() might call into softirq handling if it got raised
while disabled, you'll miss that here. The next interrupt will likely
run the softirq after that.

This is best effort error recovery, you got a splat, all we aim for is
living long enough to get the user to see it.
