Yes, with,

CONFIG_LOCKDEP=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCKDEP=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_ATOMIC_SLEEP=y

I didn't, but I guess that's because it's not trying to take the same lock
twice -- the pointer cur is changing in the loop. Unless I'm misunderstanding
what you're saying.

The idea behind this code is to lock the entire chain of filters up to the
parent so that we can ensure none of them have a listener installed. This is
based on a suggestion from Andy last review cycle to not allow two listeners,
since nesting would be confusing.
