I think I have a theory. The issue is happening due to the potential
infinite recursion:

[ 5060.124412] ___cache_free+0x488/0x6b0
*****Second recursion
[ 5060.128666] kfree+0xc9/0x1d0
[ 5060.131947] kmem_freepages+0xa0/0xf0
[ 5060.135746] slab_destroy+0x19/0x50
[ 5060.139577] slabs_destroy+0x6d/0x90
[ 5060.143379] ___cache_free+0x4a3/0x6b0
*****First recursion
[ 5060.147896] kfree+0xc9/0x1d0
[ 5060.151082] kmem_freepages+0xa0/0xf0
[ 5060.155121] slab_destroy+0x19/0x50
[ 5060.159028] slabs_destroy+0x6d/0x90
[ 5060.162920] ___cache_free+0x4a3/0x6b0
[ 5060.167097] kfree+0xc9/0x1d0

___cache_free() is calling cache_flusharray() to flush the local cpu
array_cache if the cache has more elements than the limit (ac->avail
>= ac->limit).

cache_flusharray() is removing batchcount number of element from local
cpu array_cache and pass it slabs_destroy (if the node shared cache is
also full).

Note that we have not updated local cpu array_cache size yet and
called slabs_destroy() which can call kfree() through
unaccount_slab_page().

We are on the same CPU and this recursive kfree again check the
(ac->avail >= ac->limit) and call cache_flusharray() again and recurse
indefinitely.
