Subjectlockdep wierdness...
From
Date
I'm seeing lockdep warning about a potential lock inversion between
&mm->mmap_sem and &inode->i_mutex in NFS (see attachment).

Unfortunately the basis for the warning appears to be the behaviour in
ext3(???). AFAICS there is no way for NFS to share an inode->i_mutex
with ext3. What to do?

[ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
2.6.23-rc7-g8809e921 #1
-------------------------------------------------------
beagle-build-in/24375 is trying to acquire lock:
(&mm->mmap_sem){----}, at: [<c05a2887>] do_page_fault+0x17d/0x591
but task is already holding lock:
(&inode->i_mutex){--..}, at: [<c059f9e3>] mutex_lock+0x1c/0x1f
which lock already depends on the new lock.


the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

-> #1 (&inode->i_mutex){--..}:

other info that might help us debug this:
