Description David Nielsen 2008-08-03 09:21:02 UTC
Description of problem:
I am seeing the following lockdep warning at boot as well as experiencing random frequent lockups. I suspect the two are related but am not sure.

[ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
2.6.27-0.211.rc1.git3.fc10.x86_64 #1
rt61pci/1206 is trying to acquire lock:
 (_xmit_IEEE80211#2){-...}, at: [<ffffffffa01e7c52>] ieee80211_scan_completed+0x142/0x2e2 [mac80211]

but task is already holding lock:
 (_xmit_IEEE80211#2){-...}, at: [<ffffffffa01e7c52>] ieee80211_scan_completed+0x142/0x2e2 [mac80211]

other info that might help us debug this:
3 locks held by rt61pci/1206:
 #0:  ((name)){--..}, at: [<ffffffff81054572>] run_workqueue+0xb6/0x207
