This is a lockdep-detected bug, but it is reproduced with very low probability:

testing commit 270b77a0f30e7bc61a9081b86d74dbb62fa6a69d with gcc (GCC) 8.1.0
run #0: crashed: possible deadlock in __generic_file_fsync
run #1: OK
run #2: OK
run #3: OK
run #4: OK
run #5: OK
run #6: OK
run #7: OK
run #8: OK
run #9: OK

I would expect that for lockdep it's only enough to trigger each path
involved in the deadlock once. Why is it so hard to reproduce then? Is
it something to improve in lockdep?
