You're right, this callchain can't cause the deadlock indeed. I'll go
through the other possibilities.
To give some background to others reading this thread -- Leonardo (in CC)
reported  that this patch fixes hard kernel hangs he has been seeing
when using USB CDMA modem.
Still, we don't currently seem to see the place where the interrupts get
enabled that makes the deadlock to trigger.
