    SubjectHow to explain to lock validator: locking inodes in inode order
    Code does this:

    /* Lock two items. See locking.txt */
    static inline void kb0_lock2m(struct kb0_idata *m1, struct kb0_idata *m2)
    if (m1->vi.i_ino > m2->vi.i_ino)
    if (m1->vi.i_ino < m2->vi.i_ino)

    Not sure how to explain to the lock validator that this code can never deadlock.

    Note struct kb0_idata has an element of struct inode called vi.
