Description Patrick 2012-01-15 15:15:26 UTC
Trying to debug another issue (with a wireless driver), by chance I found this "possible circular locking dependency".

Maybe some dev might want to have a look at those.

Comment 1 Patrick 2012-01-16 11:57:24 UTC
Here is another, I guess mostly identical though, lockdep debug message: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=72088
Comment 2 Patrick 2012-01-16 12:14:52 UTC
This "bug" is not really affecting me in day to day work (yet?).

It surfaced due to enabling CONFIG_LOCKDEP to debug a wireless driver issue, here: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=42576

Closing, if this is still affecting you on a newer kernel please reopen.
