That looks broken. Not having -mm, is there a git tree some place?, I
cannot quite see how end_writeback() is taking mapping->tree_lock as my
version looks like:

void end_writeback(struct inode *inode)
{
	might_sleep();
	BUG_ON(inode->i_data.nrpages);
	BUG_ON(!list_empty(&inode->i_data.private_list));
	BUG_ON(!(inode->i_state & I_FREEING));
	BUG_ON(inode->i_state & I_CLEAR);
	inode_sync_wait(inode);
	/* don't need i_lock here, no concurrent mods to i_state */
	inode->i_state = I_FREEING | I_CLEAR;
}

and I couldn't find tree_lock used in inode_sync_wait() either.

Anyway, mapping->tree_lock is supposed to be an IRQ-safe lock, look at
all the spin_lock_irq(&mapping->tree_lock) usage in mm/filemap.c.
