With spin_lock_bh(), it is possible that a tasklet processing data
events gets pre-empted by RT tasks or a storm of threaded interrupt
handlers ready to run on that core. While the tasklet gets
scheduled out, it can hold the event ring spinlock and block
another tasklet, for example, one processing an M0 state change
event, from acquiring it. This can starve the core which blocks in
an attempt to acquire the spinlock until it gets released. Fix the
issue by disabling pre-emption on the core processing data events
and allow the tasklet to run to completion such that other tasklets
do not block on it for long periods.
