This patch does not directly fix the bug syzbot is reporting, but could be relevant.
Maybe try replacing mutex_lock_killable_nested() with mutex_lock_killable() and
check what the lockdep will say?

Subject: [PATCH] block/loop: fix lock imbalance bug at lo_ioctl

Commit 2d1d4c1e591fd40b ("loop: don't call into filesystem while holding
lo_ctl_mutex") introduced mutex lock imbalance bug where syzbot would
trigger. The caller of loop_get_status64() assumes that mutex_unlock() is
already called by loop_get_status() but loop_get_status64() does not
always call loop_get_status().

Commit f028f3b2f987ebc6 ("loop: fix circular locking in loop_clr_fd()")
also dropped the mutex for deadlock avoidance reason. But we should
recheck whether we have to drop the mutex. Dropping the mutex at the
middle of an ioctl() request is not nice, but syzbot is reporting a
deadlock inside loop_reread_partitions() which is called by loop_set_fd()
and loop_change_fd().
