Except that I didn't see where you fixed all the places where it is
*not* the innermost lock. Like for example places that take dcache_lock
inside i_lock.

Really, the assertions that my series is causing the world to end
because it makes i_lock no longer the innermost lock (not that it is
anyway) etc. is just not constructive in the slightest.

A lock is a lock. If we take another lock inside it, it is not an
innermost lock. If we do it properly and don't introduce deadlocks, it
is not a bug.
