It's just a softlockup WARN, not a crash, and I think it'd to be
expected given the large runtime test_bpf reports:

You can raise the softlockup time-out by changing the number of
seconds here: /proc/sys/kernel/watchdog_thresh I think the softlockup
is counting the entire runtime of the bpf_tests run, so if it takes 30
seconds to run, put at least 15 into /proc/sys/kernel/watchdog_thresh
