Subject: Bluetooth lockdep warning

I'm getting this on current -git after adding an obexfs mount
to my fstab:

[ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
2.6.22-rc6 #2
obexfs/3786 is trying to acquire lock:
 (sk_lock-AF_BLUETOOTH){--..}, at: [<ffffffff88216593>]
l2cap_sock_bind+0x37/0xf3 [l2cap]

but task is already holding lock:
 (sk_lock-AF_BLUETOOTH){--..}, at: [<ffffffff8821f4cc>]
rfcomm_sock_connect+0x47/0xe0 [rfcomm]

other info that might help us debug this:
2 locks held by obexfs/3786:
 #0:  (sk_lock-AF_BLUETOOTH){--..}, at: [<ffffffff8821f4cc>]
rfcomm_sock_connect+0x47/0xe0 [rfc
 #1:  (rfcomm_mutex){--..}, at: [<ffffffff8123888e>] mutex_lock+0x25/0x2a

stack backtrace:

The warning appears to be bogus (things work fine), the reason
seems to be that the rfcomm socket and the rfcomm l2 socket share
the same lockdep class. Can someone more familiar with that
code please have a look?
