int blkcg_activate_policy(struct request_queue *q,

{

	...

        preloaded = !radix_tree_preload(GFP_KERNEL);

        blk_queue_bypass_start(q);




where:

int radix_tree_preload(gfp_t gfp_mask)
{
        struct radix_tree_preload *rtp;
        struct radix_tree_node *node;
        int ret = -ENOMEM;
        
        preempt_disable();


Seems obvious why it explodes..
