[PATCH 0/4] kill-the-bkl/reiserfs: fix some lock dependency inversions

From: Frederic Weisbecker
Date: Mon Aug 24 2009 - 22:33:05 EST


This small set fixes some lock dependency inversions found in reiserfs
xattr and mmap paths.
I guess there are still some of them that I'll have to hunt, especially one
reported by Laurent Riffard and another one introduced by the reiserfs_readdir
path optimization (though I'm not sure about the latter, I have yet to find a
way to reproduce it properly).

As usual, these patches can be found at:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/frederic/random-tracing.git \


Frederic Weisbecker (4):
kill-the-bkl/reiserfs: fix "reiserfs lock" / "inode mutex" lock
inversion dependency
kill-the-bkl/reiserfs: fix recursive reiserfs lock in
kill-the-bkl/reiserfs: fix recursive reiserfs write lock in
kill-the-bkl/reiserfs: panic in case of lock imbalance
