Unless you're using overlayfs or per-file encryption, I'm not seeing
that any of that should make any difference (but it's entirely
possible I'm missing something).
Was it entirely repeatable before? Maybe it just happened to happen
without that update, and then happened to _not_ happen after you
rebooted with that 'dev' branch pulled in?
Anyway, I don't think that DEBUG_LOCKS_WARN_ON() in
would be an ext4 issue, it looks more like an internal lockdep issue.
Adding in the lockdep people, who will set me right.
