I felt this message really misleading, because the deadlock is detected
at the commit time of "((complete)&wait#2)" rather than the acquisition
time of "(&bdev->bd_mutex)", so I made the following improvement.

Thoughts?

Subject: [PATCH] lockdep: Improve the readibility of crossrelease related
splats

When a crossrelease related deadlock is detected in a commit, the
current implemention makes splats like:

> fsck.ext4/148 is trying to acquire lock:
> (&bdev->bd_mutex){+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff8116e73e>] __blkdev_put+0x33/0x190

However, it could be misleading because the current task has got the
lock already, and in fact the deadlock is detected when it is doing the
commit of the crossrelease lock. So make the splats more accurate to
describe the deadlock case.
