the "Possible recursive locking detected in sysfs" issue has been fixed by the patch in this thread http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/2/11/329

John,

> This is still present in 2.6.33-rc8.
> I can trigger it every time. I have T500 laptop, the trick is to boot
> it up without plugging it in, so it is working on battery power, and
> then to shut the lid.
> first you get the message from above, and then it does a few more
> things before it freezes and I have to hard reboot it.
> The above problem does not occur if I have the laptop plugged into the wall.

please kill acpid before closing the lid and verify if the hang still exists.
