I think the commit itself is required. Simple, but not reliable,
workaround fix is like below:

diff --git a/fs/dcache.c b/fs/dcache.c
index a34d401..7c751f2 100644
--- a/fs/dcache.c
+++ b/fs/dcache.c
@@ -1879,6 +1879,8 @@ void d_instantiate_new(struct dentry *entry,
struct inode *inode)
BUG_ON(!hlist_unhashed(&entry->d_u.d_alias));
BUG_ON(!inode);
lockdep_annotate_inode_mutex_key(inode);
+ /* WORKAROUND for calling security_d_instantiate() */
+ entry->d_inode = inode;
security_d_instantiate(entry, inode);
spin_lock(&inode->i_lock);
__d_instantiate(entry, inode);
---
But I am not familiar with dentry/inode locking and there is no lock
consideration at all.
