Good catch!

No.

shrink_inactive_list lock usage is

local_irq_disable()
spin_lock(&zone->lru_lock);
while(){
if (!pagevec_add(&pvec, page)) {
spin_unlock_irq(&zone->lru_lock);
__pagevec_release(&pvec);
spin_lock_irq(&zone->lru_lock);
}
}
spin_unlock(&zone->lru_lock);
local_irq_enable();
this keep below lock rule.
- if zone->lru_lock is holded, interrupt is always disable disabled.

Right, Thanks.
