The message comes from code in XFS, but I really wonder where the atomic
context comes from. xfs_iget_core has a few changes in the tree pulled
into todays Linux-next, but it's still missing the recent updates
redoing this area completely. In some ways it looks like this process
has the the atomic context flag left pending somewhere, but that should
also trigger warnings on the VFS locks like i_mutex.

Very misterious.

IS there a specific workload you can reproduce this with?
