I've mentioned it before ( http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/5/29/502 ) and even
bisected it ( http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/6/4/313 ). I guess the problem
is that everyone is busy and it's hard to tell if people didn't see it,
if it's just not important. Perhaps there needs to be a rule that
lockdep warnings always go into bugzilla (or that if you are willing
to chase an issue for a minimum of six months it should be bugzillad...).

Thanks for your work looking at the real bug though!
