Note, there are BKL-removal patches in the works by Frédéric
Weisbecker, for the tip:kill-the-BKL topic branch.

Reiser3 is the heaviest (and most non-trivial) BKL user amongst all
the filesystems, its BKL use is recursive and it frequently relies
on the implicit dropping of the BKL at various blocking points both
for correctness and for performance reasons.

There might be something worth posting+reviewing soon.
