What is strange about my configuration? Just that I enabled the
RCU boost and other new RCU features?

Surely it's not that I'm just doing lots of mounts and unmounts

And I was posting lockdep warnings on this since -rc1 or so, though granted
I was running a few extra patches and having other bugs at the same time....
Thanks,
Ben
