This looks like something that happens at boot / hardware setup time and
not while the system is running "production". Thanks for the feedback.

I've been interested in cases which can stack up beyond 2 and can be
triggered by users because these may influence the RT workload.
The pm-case has been filtered out because nobody should do RT a workload
while PM is going up and down. The report I got was in the init-phase of
crypto which does not trigger usually and shouldn't trigger at run-time
once everything is set up.
Feel free to raise the bar here to avoid the warning in your case here.
I'm currently thinking about removing the warning due to lack of new
