That's quite an audit trail.

Shouldn't we be doing a cc:stable here? If so, which patch do we
identify as being fixed, with "Fixes:"? d92a8cfcb37ecd13, I assume?

I'd never even noticed fs_reclaim_acquire() and friends before. I do
wish they had "lockdep" in their names, and a comment to explain what
they do and why they exist.
