Ok, problem is reproduced with wireless-testing, too. I also have hangs
when unloading the driver sometimes (loaded with fwlps=0), but I wasn't
able to get a trace either.

I enabled the following options:
CONFIG_LOCKDEP_SUPPORT=y
CONFIG_LOCKDEP=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCKDEP=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_MUTEXES=y
But it didn't detect any lockup yet, and machine still hangs. I'll try
CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING.

Enabling CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO seems to make the problem go away...

Nope, not yet.
