Was waiting for more specific instructions with respect to kernel config
options and how to use LOCKDEP (not familiar with it), and decided to
give 3.3.0-rc4 a try in the meantime.  Did NOT see the kjournald issue.

I guess I'll label this a "watch" item for now, unless something that
changed between -rc3 and -rc4 can be identified as the probable fix.
