The VFS takes the directory i_mutex and reiserfs_delete_inode() takes the
to-be-deleted file's i_mutex.

That's notabug and lockdep will need to be taught about it.

That being said, the reiserfs locking appears to be unneeded - this inode
is going down and nobody else can look it up, so what is to be locked
against?
