But these two don't block each other, as both run with interrupts

That's bad. CPU4 sitting at the final loop in flush_area_mask()
makes clear that's the flush_lock holder, but we can imply it has
IRQs on just like CPUs 0 and 2. While the place CPU2 was
caught also doesn't allow us to deduce which other CPU(s)
is/are not responding, the main candidate would appear to be
CPU1, of which we know nothing except that it also sits in
_spin_lock(). Neither flush_lock nor call_lock would ever be
acquired with IRQs off, so I'd conclude there must be a 3rd
lock involved here.

Therefore I'm afraid the only way we could obtain a more
complete picture would be if this re-occurred and if at that
time we'd have "async-show-all" in place on the hypervisor
command line.
