Ok, this doesn't look all that different, but now it's not truncated
any more because the random "waits for children or poll" cases are

It's still basically all blocked on the ext4 journal. All writes as
far as I can see.

That said, there's that odd kworker/1:2 there that seems to be
constantly running. Can you get the EIP for that one (several times)
by doing sysrq-p (or maybe sysrq-l is better - that should give the
stack trace too).
