Hi,

Thanks for the report.

That's rubbish. The lock analyser is not intelligent enough for
ntfs... )-:

FWIW it appears to be picking up that locks depend on each other even
when they relate to different inodes which means that they do not depend
on each other. It perhaps is getting confused by the special case for
the table of inodes ($MFT) which has the lock dependency reverse to all
other inodes but it is special because it can never take the lock
recursively (and hence deadlock) because we always keep the whole
runlist for $MFT in memory and should a bug or memory corruption cause
this not to be the case then ntfs will detect this and go BUG() so it
still will not deadlock...

The people responsible for the lock analyser will need to fix this in
their code or by adding some magic to ntfs to make the errors go away...

Best regards,

Anton
