There isn't much in the kernel log, the closest thing I can get is
with dyndbg="file drivers/base/power/main.c +p":
[   58.441073][ T3511] virtio-pci 0000:00:06.0: bus freeze
[   58.448744][ T3511] virtio-pci 0000:00:05.0: bus freeze
[   58.454500][ T3511] virtio-pci 0000:00:04.0: bus freeze
[   58.456873][ T3511] virtio-pci 0000:00:03.0: bus freeze

And then the VM hangs.

The 0000:00:03.0 pci device is virtio-rng.

If I add printks around that kthread_stop() in hwrng_unregister()
only the first one gets printed.

The kernel under test is current torvalds/master, I can see that it
contains both commit ff296293b353 and commit 59b569480dc8.

I assume that the third commit you mention is the original one that this
e-mail message Subject line refers to (03a3bb7ae63150).

Thanks,
Maciej
