When executing

ansible -vvv localhost -m include_role -a "name=someName" --extra-vars="version=someVersion"

the output is

ansible 2.8.0
  config file = /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg
  configured module search path = [u'/root/.ansible/plugins/modules', u'/usr/share/ansible/plugins/modules']

ERROR! 'async_val' is not a valid attribute for a IncludeRole

The error appears to be in 'None': line 0, column 0, but may
be elsewhere in the file depending on the exact syntax problem.

(could not open file to display line)

Where is the async_val set? I could not find it in any of the roles or config files.

The message comes from ansible's internals. This happens only when you use include_role as an ad-hoc command. It was apparently fixed very recently and should be released for version 2.9.
