At the breaking function we have:

29      void notifier_remove(Notifier *notifier)
30      {
31          QLIST_REMOVE(notifier, node);
32      }

(gdb) p notifier
$1 = (Notifier *) 0x55d2f40c5078
(gdb) p *notifier
$2 = {notify = 0x0, node = {le_next = 0x0, le_prev = 0x0}}

And since QLIST_REMOVE is defined as:
140 #define QLIST_REMOVE(elm, field) do {                                   \   
141         if ((elm)->field.le_next != NULL)                               \   
142                 (elm)->field.le_next->field.le_prev =                   \   
143                     (elm)->field.le_prev;                               \   
144         *(elm)->field.le_prev = (elm)->field.le_next;                   \   
145 } while (/*CONSTCOND*/0)

(gdb) p (notifier)->node.le_next
$5 = (struct Notifier *) 0x0
(gdb) p &(notifier->node)
$11 = (struct {...} *) 0x55d2f40c5080

There actually is a != NULL check, might it have changed on the fly.
I need to look at it more thoroughly, but it should be enough to recognize a 
known issue.

   2. attach PCI device to this VM (Mellanox VF for example)
   3. try to detaching  the PCI device using virsh command:
     a. create a pci interface xml file:
        <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'>
        <driver name='vfio'/>
        <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x11' slot='0x00'
