reiserfs: fix unwanted reiserfs lock recursion
Frederic Weisbecker [Thu, 30 Sep 2010 22:15:38 +0000 (15:15 -0700)]
Prevent from recursively locking the reiserfs lock in reiserfs_unpack()
because we may call journal_begin() that requires the lock to be taken
only once, otherwise it won't be able to release the lock while taking
other mutexes, ending up in inverted dependencies between the journal
mutex and the reiserfs lock for example.

This fixes:

  [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
  2.6.35.4.4a #3
  -------------------------------------------------------
  lilo/1620 is trying to acquire lock:
   (&journal->j_mutex){+.+...}, at: [<d0325bff>] do_journal_begin_r+0x7f/0x340 [reiserfs]

  but task is already holding lock:
   (&REISERFS_SB(s)->lock){+.+.+.}, at: [<d032a278>] reiserfs_write_lock+0x28/0x40 [reiserfs]

  which lock already depends on the new lock.
