Subject2.6.24-rc8: possible circular locking dependency detected
Hi,

just FYI, upgrading to -rc8 gave the following messages in kern.log in
the morning hours, when the backups were run:

=======================================================
[ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
2.6.24-rc8 #2
-------------------------------------------------------
rsync/23295 is trying to acquire lock:
(iprune_mutex){--..}, at: [<c017a552>] shrink_icache_memory+0x72/0x220
but task is already holding lock:
(&(&ip->i_iolock)->mr_lock){----}, at: [<c0275056>] xfs_ilock+0x96/0xb0
which lock already depends on the new lock.


the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

-> #1 (&(&ip->i_iolock)->mr_lock){----}:
[<c0138c01>] __lock_acquire+0xbe1/0x10b0
