I've enabled lock debugging and this is what happened after a few hours
uptime. (I can't tell if this is a false positive):

=======================================================
[ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
2.6.39-rc5-00130-g3fd9952 #10
-------------------------------------------------------
kio_file/7364 is trying to acquire lock:
 (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#5/2){+.+...}, at: [<ffffffff81151e4e>] 
generic_file_splice_write+0xce/0x180

but task is already holding lock:
 (xfs_iolock_active){++++++}, at: [<ffffffff811d7d05>] xfs_ilock+0x125/0x1f0

which lock already depends on the new lock.


the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

other info that might help us debug this:

1 lock held by kio_file/7364:
 #0:  (xfs_iolock_active){++++++}, at: [<ffffffff811d7d05>] 
xfs_ilock+0x125/0x1f0
