Jonathan, there's a side-issue reported there, us running out of
lockdep space. Could you try this commit from -tip:

d80c19d: lockdep: increase MAX_LOCKDEP_ENTRIES and MAX_LOCKDEP_CHAINS

(which i'll get to Linus in the next ~24 hours.) Maybe that allows
lockdep to report the reason for the deadlock.

that crash is in reiserfs_for_each_xattr(), during sys_unlink()'s
xattr teardown.

There's been a good deal of reiserfs changes in this cycle - some
touch the xattr code as well. Some of them fairly late in the cycle,
in the last two weeks:

earth4:~/tip> gll v2.6.29..linus --since=two-weeks-ago fs/reiserfs/
2a32ceb: Fix races around the access to ->s_options
677c9b2: reiserfs: remove privroot hiding in lookup
b82bb72: reiserfs: dont associate security.* with xattr files
ab17c4f: reiserfs: fixup xattr_root caching
edcc37a: Always lookup priv_root on reiserfs mount and keep it
5a6059c: reiserfs: Expand i_mutex to enclose lookup_one_len

Martin, you could try a blind revert of say ... ab17c4f, which looks
the most suspect and which is also a rather large commit.

Or/and you could try a bisect - perhaps accelerated via:

git bisect start fs/reiserfs/

tainted crash, but probably legit. It does show some badness in an
old-IDE legacy codepath:

[<c0371865>] error_code+0x65/0x6c
[<c0110155>] do_page_fault+0x0/0x1e0

[<c01019be>] cpu_idle+0x19/0x2d
[<c0468907>] start_kernel+0x23f/0x242

report subject line is too unspecific, it should be changed to
something like:

legacy IDE cmd40x related bootup crash

looks like wireless related - the dependency that connects the
locks in a wrong way appears to be:

-> #2 (cfg80211_mutex){+.+.+.}:
[<ffffffff80271a64>] __lock_acquire+0xc64/0x10a0
[<ffffffff80271f38>] lock_acquire+0x98/0x140
[<ffffffff8054e78c>] __mutex_lock_common+0x4c/0x3b0
[<ffffffff8054ebf6>] mutex_lock_nested+0x46/0x60
[<ffffffffa007e66a>] reg_todo+0x19a/0x590 [cfg80211]
[<ffffffff80258f18>] worker_thread+0x1e8/0x3a0
[<ffffffff8025dc3a>] kthread+0x5a/0xa0
[<ffffffff8020d23a>] child_rip+0xa/0x20

(havent checked deeper)

same as #13296 above. (The one above should be merged into this one
i guess)

should be resolved via the lockdep space extension fix.

solved by:

Author: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@vyatta.com>

mention bugzilla id.

I think this might be fixed by:

Oleg says in that thread that it's as-designed, and followup
questions were not replied to (yet).

But ... a relevant seeming commit has been bisected to so this
shouldnt be ignored that easily.

Andrew, you merged the commit that was bisected to:
