Kernel 5.9.11 will panic/crash on shutdown after commit fe5186cf12e3 ( which entered 5.9 with 5.9.11. This commit causes issues:

The memory leak addressed by commit fe5186cf12e3 is a false positive:
all allocations are recorded in a linked list, and freed when the
filesystem is unmounted. This leads to double frees, and as reported
by David, leads to crashes if SLUB is configured to self destruct when
double frees occur.

This affects linux-5.9.11.arch1-1 and linux-zen-5.9.11.zen1-1
