    yup, but the lock_page() which we did inside truncate_mutex was a
    lock_page() against a different address_space: the blockdev mapping.

    So this is OK - we'll never take truncate_mutex against the blockdev
    mapping (it doesn't have one, for a start ;))

    This is similar to the quite common case where we take inode A's
    i_mutex inside inode B's i_mutex, which needs special lockdep annotations.

    I think. I haven't looked into this in detail.
