Subject: dm: possible recursive locking detected

With the git tree as of today I get the following:

=============================================
[ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
2.6.19-rc5-g0579e303-dirty #22
---------------------------------------------
kpartx/933 is trying to acquire lock:
 (&md->io_lock){----}, at: [<000000000023167e>] dm_request+0x52/0x25c

but task is already holding lock:
 (&md->io_lock){----}, at: [<000000000023167e>] dm_request+0x52/0x25c

other info that might help us debug this:
1 lock held by kpartx/933:
 #0:  (&md->io_lock){----}, at: [<000000000023167e>] dm_request+0x52/0x25c

It probably just misses some annotation, but would be good to have this fixed
before 2.6.19.

Btw.: seeing these recursive calls again makes me remember that there is
still md-dm-reduce-stack-usage-with-stacked-block-devices.patch in the
-mm tree.
Any chance that that one will ever move to Linus' repository?
