other info that might help us debug this:

Chain exists of:
  (&sq->pending_timer) --> &q->queue_lock --> &blkcg->lock

 Possible unsafe locking scenario:

       CPU0                    CPU1
       ----                    ----
  lock(&blkcg->lock);
                               lock(&q->queue_lock);
                               lock(&blkcg->lock);
  lock((&sq->pending_timer));
