Is this is important point and what you're saying is that this only
panics on kernels before 5.10 or so because after that it's correctly
failed by block device error handling so there's nothing to fix in
later kernels?

In that case, isn't the correct fix to look at backporting the block
device error handling:

block: add error handling for device_add_disk / add_disk
