Perhaps you're working from a different tree than I am, or you fixed the lockdep warning differently when adding to dup_mmap() and mmap_region(). I got the following two lockdep errors. I fixed it locally by doing the seqcount_init() and atomic_set() everywhere a vma could be initialized. INFO: trying to register non-static key. the code is fine but needs lockdep annotation. turning off the locking correctness validator.

It's obviously too delicate as is.
