That's my guess. I've been doing a lot of regression testing with
lockdep enabled, and I haven't seen the problem which Sedat has
reported.

At the moment I'm testing my ext4 bug fixes on top of 243d5067858310
(Merge branch 'overlayfs-linus'....) dating from March 22nd, and the
lockdep merges came much earlier than that, on March 15th, just two
days after v4.5 was released, and I'm not noticing any lockdep issues
with ext4 while running all of my regression tests.
