Hi

Where can I get that patch set?

We are experiencing other similar deadlocks on RHEL-6, caused by sync or
background writeback (these code paths take s_umount and wait trying to do
I/O), but I wasn't able to reproduce these deadlocks on upstream kernel?
Are there other known deadlock possibilities?
