And I got this output when I booted kernel 2.6.18 using nfsroot:

--- snip ---
Mounting remote filesystems...

[ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
mount/1381 is trying to acquire lock:
 (&mm->mmap_sem){----}, at: [<80032370>] do_page_fault+0xf0/0x3e0

but task is already holding lock:
 (sk_lock-AF_INET){--..}, at: [<802a55ac>] tcp_recvmsg+0x44/0x920

which lock already depends on the new lock.

the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

       [<800339c0>] tlb_do_page_fault_1+0x104/0x114

other info that might help us debug this:

1 lock held by mount/1381:
 #0:  (sk_lock-AF_INET){--..}, at: [<802a55ac>] tcp_recvmsg+0x44/0x920

stack backtrace:

I'm not familiar with lockdep output.  Is this a real dependency bug
or lack of annotation on somewhere, or something other ?
