Hum... I'm not sure that would be the best way since in other case lockdep
checks are valid, but if getting rid of locked's warning is required to get
this series upstream, I'd use raw versions... Please advice...

From the code reading I can't see any valid reason for a circular lock
dependency.

This is exactly the same you got previously, and I still can't see how the
chain "&mapping->i_mmap_rwsem --> &vma->vm_sequence/1 --> fs_reclaim" could
happen.

Cheers,
