This looks sensible -- normal use case.

This is during console init, so even if the report is not false
positive, the deadlock is unlikely to happen. And only triggered with
CONFIG_DEBUG_OBJECTS_FREE.

In any way, I don't see any connection between #2 and #0 below. The
stack traces are completely different -- one from start_kernel, one from
exit syscall.

I also wonder how could the commit above start causing this? Well, it
might make it happen more likely due to more of EAGAINs.
