When I was removing dlm module,I hit in to below error.
This patch should take care of that particular warning, please let me know
if it doesn't. I'll carry it in ocfs2.git shortly.
Thanks Mark,It worked fine for me.
Hmm, I get other warnings from configfs starting and stopping the ocfs2
cluster stack, so I bet we've got some more mutex_lock() calls in there to
change to mutex_lock_nested():

[ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
2.6.19-rc2 #1
---------------------------------------------
o2cb_ctl/2457 is trying to acquire lock:
 (&inode->i_mutex){--..}, at: [<c02ff984>] mutex_lock+0x21/0x24

but task is already holding lock:
 (&inode->i_mutex){--..}, at: [<c02ff984>] mutex_lock+0x21/0x24

other info that might help us debug this:

configfs: mutex_lock_nested() fix

configfs_unregister_subsystem() nests a pair of inode i_mutex acquisitions,
and thus needs annotation via mutex_lock_nested().
