Smatch (http://repo.or.cz/w/smatch.git/) complains about the locking in
ext4_mb_add_n_trim() from fs/ext4/mballoc.c

  4438          list_for_each_entry_rcu(tmp_pa, &lg->lg_prealloc_list[order],
  4439                                                  pa_inode_list) {
  4440                  spin_lock(&tmp_pa->pa_lock);
  4441                  if (tmp_pa->pa_deleted) {
  4442                          spin_unlock(&pa->pa_lock);
  4443                          continue;
  4444                  }
