Ah, OK, I see the problem, though I don't understand why I'm not
seeing the might_sleep() triggering all the time given that I always
build with:

$ grep SLEEP .config
CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK_SLEEP=y

Basically the above commit moved xfs_ilock() inside
radix_tree_preload()/radix_tree_preload_end(), which means we are
taking a rwsem() while we have an elevated preempt count. I'll
get a patch out to fix it.

The question is why isn't this triggering for me during QA runs?

Cheers,

Dave.
