Hi Dave,

Thanks for the bug report!  The following should address the bug which
you found.

Subject: [PATCH] ext4: don't call ext4_error while block group is locked

While in ext4_validate_block_bitmap(), if an block allocation bitmap
is found to be invalid, we call ext4_error() while the block group is
still locked.  This causes ext4_commit_super() to call a function
which might sleep while in an atomic context.

There's no need to keep the block group locked at this point, so hoist
the ext4_error() call up to ext4_validate_block_bitmap() and release
the block group spinlock before calling ext4_error().

The reported stack trace can be found at:
