F7 test1 stack traceback when mounting an xfs filesystem
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:18:20 EST
Description of problem:
F7 test1 reports possible recursive locking and gives a stack traceback when
trying to mount an xfs filesystem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.20-1.2930.fc7 i686 32-bit
Mount an xfs filesystem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an xfs filesystem or find an existing one.
2. Mount it.
3. Observe /var/log/messages.
Complaint about possible recursive locking being detected, along with a stack
traceback. Some filesystem operations appear to work afterwards, but I haven't
trusted it enough to give it an extensive workout. (My xfs filesystems have
live data that I don't want to lose.)
Normal mount and everything works with no complaints.
Stack traceback attached.

Stack traceback extracted from /var/log/messages.
This is confirmed still a problem in F7 test3 updated to 2.6.20-1.3045.fc7.
It appears that the traceback does not occur until the first access to the
filesystem. I can mount an xfs filesystem, and if it is not accessed, there is
This is really just a lockdep annotation problem, shouldn't affect functionality.
