This is not observed with Debian backports 5.10 package

uname -a
Linux madding 5.10.0-0.bpo.3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.13-1~bpo10+1
(2021-02-11) x86_64 GNU/Linux

I left the testcase running for ~ 4 hours on a 6core/12thread Ryzen. It
should have blown up 10 times by now.

So one of the commits between 5.4 and 5.10.13 fixed it.

If nobody can think of a particular commit which fixes it, I can try
dissecting it during the week.
