1 2

open(/dev/md0)

open(/dev/md0)
- do_open() -> bdev->bd_mutex
ioctl(/dev/md0, hotadd)
- md_ioctl() -> mddev->reconfig_mutex
-- hot_add_disk()
--- bind_rdev_to_array()
---- bd_claim_by_disk()
----- bd_claim_by_kobject()
-- md_open()
--- mddev_lock()
---- mutex_lock(mddev->reconfig_mutex)
------ mutex_lock(bdev->bd_mutex)


looks like an AB-BA deadlock to me
