2.6.20.7 tested, same lockdep triggers. Attached for reference.

It's been a while since I tested on this box, so I don't really recall.
But fio does close() the fd before doing munmap(). This particular test
case doesn't use mmap(), though.


=======================================================
[ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
2.6.20.7 #1
-------------------------------------------------------
fio/6651 is trying to acquire lock:
(&mm->mmap_sem){----}, at: [<b01899c4>] dio_get_page+0x54/0x161
but task is already holding lock:
(&inode->i_mutex){--..}, at: [<b0385e85>] mutex_lock+0x1c/0x1f
which lock already depends on the new lock.
