That patch seems to break my system.
After it started to swap, because I was compiling seamonkey (firefox
turned into the full navigator suite) on a tmpfs, several processes
got stuck and triggered the hung-task-check.
As a kswapd, xfsaild/md4 and flush-9:4 also got stuck, not even a
shutdown worked.

The attached log first contains the hung-task-notices, then the output
from SysRq+W.

After the shutdown got stuck trying to turn of swap, I first tries
SysRq+S, but did not get a 'Done' and on SysRq+U lockdep complained
about an lock imbalance wrt. sb_writer. SysRq+O also did no longer
work, only SysRq+B.

I don't know which one got stuck first, but I'm somewhat suspicious of
the plasma-desktop and the sshd that SysRq+W reported stuck in xfs
reclaim, even if these processes did never trigger the hung task
