Sorry :(

I used the davem patch, the second version of your first one, and your second one. Both problems persist.

Still plugging away on bisection.

GIT bisecting the lockdep problem is surely going the land you on:

commit e308a5d806c852f56590ffdd3834d0df0cbed8d7

No. It landed on this one.

pkt_sched: Schedule qdiscs instead of netdev_queue.

When we have shared qdiscs, packets come out of the qdiscs
for multiple transmit queues.

Therefore it doesn't make any sense to schedule the transmit
queue when logically we cannot know ahead of time the TX
queue of the SKB that the qdisc->dequeue() will give us.

Just for sanity I added a BUG check to make sure we never
get into a state where the noop_qdisc is scheduled.
