[CentOS-virt] Xen PV DomU running Kernel 4.14.5-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64: xl -v vcpu-set <domU> <val> triggers domU kernel WARNING, then domU becomes unresponsive

Has anyone seen this recently? I couldn't replicate it on:
- CentOS 6 running kernel-2.6.32-696.16.1.el6.x86_64, 
kernel-lt-4.4.105-1.el6.elrepo.x86_64
- CentOS 7 running 4.9.67-1.el7.centos.x86_64

But I can replicate it consistently running "xl -v vcpu-set <domU> 
<val>" on:
- CentOS 6 running 4.14.5-1.el6.elrepo.x86_64
- CentOS 7 running 4.14.5-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64

dom0 versions tested with similar results in the domU:
- 4.6.6-6.el7 on kernel 4.9.63-29.el7.x86_64
- 4.6.3-15.el6 on kernel 4.9.37-29.el6.x86_64

Noticed behaviour:
- These commands stall:
top
ls -l /var/tmp
ls -l /tmp
- Stuck in D state on the CentOS 7 domU:

At a first glance it appears the issue is in 4.14.5 kernel. Stack traces
