I'm not so sure. It looks like atomic64s use spinlocks on processors
that don't have 64-bit atomic instructions (see lib/atomic64.c). And
those spinlocks are not initialized until a pure initcall runs,
init_atomic64_lock(). Pure initcalls don't run until after
vfs_caches_init() and so you get this BUG() warning that the spinlock is
not initialized.

How about we initialize the locks statically? Does that fix your problem?
