So basically you want RT stuff to know that several areas in fs/dcache.c
(from write_seqcount_begin() to write_seqcount_end()) are protected by
(already held by that point) ->d_lock of corresponding dentries?

If that's it, I suggest to look for a solution that would express just that...
Or do you want something on the reader side as well?
