Subject[PATCH 18/28] sysfs: suppress lockdep warnings
Date
From: Frederik Deweerdt <deweerdt@free.fr>

Lockdep issues the following warning:
[ 9.064000] =============================================
[ 9.064000] [ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
[ 9.064000] 2.6.20-rc3-mm1 #3
[ 9.064000] ---------------------------------------------
[ 9.064000] init/1 is trying to acquire lock:
[ 9.064000] (&sysfs_inode_imutex_key){--..}, at: [<c03e6afc>] mutex_lock+0x1c/0x1f
[ 9.064000]
[ 9.064000] but task is already holding lock:
[ 9.064000] (&sysfs_inode_imutex_key){--..}, at: [<c03e6afc>] mutex_lock+0x1c/0x1f
[ 9.065000]
[ 9.065000] other info that might help us debug this:

This is due to sysfs_hash_and_remove() holding dir->d_inode->i_mutex
before calling sysfs_drop_dentry() which calls orphan_all_buffers()
which in turn takes node->i_mutex.
