I am currently looking at kernel bug 22602 [2] and Ubuntu bug 922906 [1].

I've noticed that a set of patches adding additional locking from Lino
Sanfilippo solve this
issue. [3]

Myself and another Ubuntu developer have been able to verify that these
patches fix the problem using the testcase provided in the kernel bug.

I was wondering what the status of these patches found in [4] are. Will
these be merged into mainline eventually?

I'm not sure if they needed rework, or if there was any conclusion to
that thread. If there is help needed let me know.
