XFS is waiting on IO completion to be signalled from the block
device, and the bisect points to commit fixing a problem with a
block device processing IO timeout errors.

IOWs, the above commit is probably exposing a latent bug in the
commit that changes all the error handling in nbd to fix completion
races in IO completion. The commit message for 8f3ea35929a0 ("nbd:
handle unexpected replies better") also makes mention of races with
timeout errors, and the above commit is touching the timeout error

Josef, this one looks like it is yours...
