    Subject[PATCH] hugetlbfs: lockdep annotate root inode properly
    From: "Aneesh Kumar K.V" <>

    This fix the below lockdep warning

    [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
    3.3.0-rc4+ #190 Not tainted
    shared/1568 is trying to acquire lock:
    (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#12){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff811efa0f>] hugetlbfs_file_mmap+0x7d/0x108

    but task is already holding lock:
    (&mm->mmap_sem){++++++}, at: [<ffffffff810f5589>] sys_mmap_pgoff+0xd4/0x12f

    which lock already depends on the new lock.

    the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

    -> #1 (&mm->mmap_sem){++++++}:
    [<ffffffff8109fb8f>] lock_acquire+0xd5/0xfa
    [<ffffffff810ee439>] might_fault+0x6d/0x90
    [<ffffffff8111bc12>] filldir+0x6a/0xc2

    [<ffffffff8111bf6a>] sys_getdents+0x79/0xc9
    [<ffffffff816940a2>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b

    -> #0 (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#12){+.+.+.}:
    [<ffffffff8109f40a>] __lock_acquire+0xa6c/0xd60
    [<ffffffff8109fb8f>] lock_acquire+0xd5/0xfa

    [<ffffffff81691a85>] mutex_lock_nested+0x2a/0x31
    [<ffffffff811efa0f>] hugetlbfs_file_mmap+0x7d/0x108
    [<ffffffff810f4fd0>] mmap_region+0x26f/0x466
    [<ffffffff810f545b>] do_mmap_pgoff+0x294/0x2ee

    [<ffffffff8103d1f2>] sys_mmap+0x1d/0x1f
    [<ffffffff816940a2>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b

    other info that might help us debug this:
