yup, but the lock_page() which we did inside truncate_mutex was a
lock_page() against a different address_space: the blockdev mapping.

So this is OK - we'll never take truncate_mutex against the blockdev
mapping (it doesn't have one, for a start ;))

This is similar to the quite common case where we take inode A's
i_mutex inside inode B's i_mutex, which needs special lockdep annotations.

I think. I haven't looked into this in detail.
