Okay. I think I understand this:

(1) cachefiles_read_waiter() intercepts wake up events, and, as such, is run
inside the waitqueue spinlock for the page bit waitqueue.

(2) cachefiles_read_waiter() calls fscache_enqueue_retrieval() which calls
fscache_enqueue_operation() which calls schedule_work() for fast
operations, thus taking a per-CPU workqueue spinlock.

(3) queue_work(), which is called by many things, calls __queue_work(), which
takes the per-CPU workqueue spinlock.

(4) __queue_work() then calls insert_work(), which calls wake_up(), which
takes the waitqueue spinlock for the per-CPU workqueue waitqueue.

Even though the two waitqueues are separate, I think lockdep sees them as
having the same lock.

Ingo: Is there any way around this?
