I'm pretty confident that my patch that Josh linked to would "fix" the
lockdep warning below. According to the backtrace, it is barking about a
directory inode and a regular inode having a circular locking
dependency, so deadlock is not possible in this case.

akpm picked up my patch in the mm tree, but it still hasn't made it into
mainline.
