Subject[PATCH 0/5] reiserfs lock inversion fixes on xattr

Christian Kujau's use of dbench to test reiserfs xattr has inspired me.
I tried dbench -x yesterday and got various soft-lockups and lockdep

I fixed all those I've seen in this batch and it passed through 6 hours
of stress testing (if a loop of dbench -x -t 60 20 can be called stress
testing) and things look pretty fine now.

I hope you can give it a try (and/or review) before I send the whole
to Linus.


It's on:


How to get it:

git-clone git://
cd linux-2.6.git
git-pull git:// reiserfs/kill-bkl

Frederic Weisbecker (5):
reiserfs: Relax lock before open xattr dir in reiserfs_xattr_set_handle()
reiserfs: Fix unwanted recursive reiserfs lock in reiserfs_unlink()
reiserfs: Fix journal mutex <-> inode mutex lock inversion
reiserfs: Safely acquire i_mutex from reiserfs_for_each_xattr
reiserfs: Safely acquire i_mutex from xattr_rmdir
