fsck, this is non-ending... obviously, this is insufficient:
preempt_count will equal two if the BKL was previously held and
in_atomic() will trip.

This should work:

if (likely(!kernel_locked())
tsk->lock_depth = -2;
else {
/* compensate for BKL; we still cannot preempt */

look sane?

Now, remind me why this is all worth it...
