Subject: Nested VLAN causes recursive locking error


kernel version is 2.6.24-0.107.rc5.git3.fc9

>From boot log on serial console:
(full log attached)

Added VLAN with VID == 2 to IF -:eth0.1568:-

[ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
2.6.24-0.107.rc5.git3.fc9 #1
ifconfig/15011 is trying to acquire lock:
 (&vlan_netdev_xmit_lock_key){-+..}, at: [<c05d9450>] dev_mc_sync+0x1c/0x102

but task is already holding lock:
 (&vlan_netdev_xmit_lock_key){-+..}, at: [<c05d51bd>] dev_set_rx_mode+0x14/0x3c

other info that might help us debug this:
2 locks held by ifconfig/15011:
 #0:  (rtnl_mutex){--..}, at: [<c05de4f7>] rtnl_lock+0xf/0x11
 #1:  (&vlan_netdev_xmit_lock_key){-+..}, at: [<c05d51bd>] dev_set_rx_mode+0x14/0x3c
