Thanks for the quick review.

Documentation/RCU/checklist.rst suggests switching to queue_rcu_work()
function in scenarios where the callback function can block. This seems
like it would fix the issue you found, while still providing similar
performance improvements.

perf stat -r 10 --null --pre 'mount -t tmpfs tmpfs mnt' -- umount -l mnt
        0.003066 +- 0.000307 seconds time elapsed  ( +- 10.02% )

perf stat -r 10 --null --pre 'mount -t tmpfs tmpfs mnt' -- umount -l mnt
        0.0030812 +- 0.0000524 seconds time elapsed  ( +-  1.70% )
