So I vfs-scale-working branch may not be entirely in the clear, seeing
as it touches
the code lower in the call chain. However I don't know what can cause
lockdep to go off
the rails like this.

There is a sequence I used to hack around lockdep nesting
restrictions, following this
pattern:

repeat:
spin_lock(&parent->d_lock);
spin_lock_nested(&dentry->d_lock, DENTRY_D_LOCK_NESTED);
/* do stuff */
spin_unlock(&parent->d_lock);
spin_release(&dentry->d_lock.dep_map, 1, _RET_IP_);
parent = dentry;
spin_acquire(&this_parent->d_lock.dep_map, 0, 1, _RET_IP_);
goto repeat;
It's not directly in this call chain, but I wonder if it could have
caused any problem?
