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

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.
