is this reproducible? It looks like this came from:

journal.c:127: mutex_lock_nested(&wbuf->io_mutex, wbuf->jhead);

May be memory corruption? Did you try to see where exectly was the oops,
on which C statement?

Do you have lockdep enabled? Can it be that lockdep somehow shutdown
first? This is unlikely, though.

May be the FS was somehow unmounted, so UBIFS freed its data structures,
and now UBIFS accesses freed memory?

Try to inject some printks to ubifs_umount() or just enable the general
UBIFS messages (enable UBIFS debugging in menuconfig first, then enable
the general messages via module parameters or sysfs, see
