I'm afraid there is a possibly workqueue related deadlock under high
memory pressure.  It happens on dm-crypt + md raid1 configuration.
I'm not yet sure whether this is caused by workqueue failing to kick
rescuers under memory pressure or the shared workqueue is making an
already existing problem more visible and in the process of setting up
an environment to reproduce the problem.
