    Subjectlockdep splat from fbmem

    Hi,

    fb_mmap() is called under mmap_sem and acquires fb_info->lock.

    Since 3e680aae4e53ab "fb: convert lock/unlock_kernel() into local fb
    mutex", fb_ioctl() takes fb_info->lock and does copy_to/from_user()
    under it, which in turn might acquire mmap_sem.

    Just noticed the trace and wanted to let you know.

    Hannes
