I like your patch. Thanks a lot for doing this.. It keeps most of the
benefits of my patch while avoiding the issues with lockdep. I agree
we can look at the remaining lockdep issue after. There were several
lockdep issues with this patch that I fixed over the the months, but
there's still the one that Masami reported that I believe you're also
seeing. Once I'm back I'll work on figuring that one out.

Could you pull in the fixes to the other issues I posted though? With
that we should be good.
