Ok I tested this. I can't use your script to repro because
- I don't have a setup with xfs, and the splat points at an issue in xfs
- reproducing lockdep splats in shrinker callbacks is always a bit tricky

So instead I made a quick test to validate whether the fs_reclaim
annotations work correctly, and nothing has changed:

+       printk("GFP_NOFS block\n");
+       fs_reclaim_acquire(GFP_NOFS);
+       printk("allocate atomic\n");
+       kfree(kmalloc(16, GFP_ATOMIC));
+       printk("allocate noio\n");
+       kfree(kmalloc(16, GFP_NOIO));

The below two calls to kmalloc are wrong, but the current annotations
don't track __GFP_IO and other levels, only __GFP_FS. So no lockdep
splats here.

+       printk("allocate nofs\n");
+       kfree(kmalloc(16, GFP_NOFS));
+       printk("allocate kernel\n");
+       kfree(kmalloc(16, GFP_KERNEL));
+       fs_reclaim_release(GFP_NOFS);
+
+
+       printk("GFP_KERNEL block\n");
+       fs_reclaim_acquire(GFP_KERNEL);
+       printk("allocate atomic\n");
+       kfree(kmalloc(16, GFP_ATOMIC));
+       printk("allocate noio\n");
+       kfree(kmalloc(16, GFP_NOIO));
+       printk("allocate nofs\n");
+       kfree(kmalloc(16, GFP_NOFS));

This allocation is buggy, and should splat. This is the case for both
with my patch, and with my patch reverted.

+       printk("allocate kernel\n");
+       kfree(kmalloc(16, GFP_KERNEL));
+       fs_reclaim_release(GFP_KERNEL);

I also looked at the paths in your lockdep splat in xfs, this is
simply GFP_KERNEL vs a shrinker reclaim in kswapd.

Summary: Everything is working as expected, there's no change in the
lockdep annotations.

I really think the problem is that either your testcase doesn't hit
the issue reliably enough, or that you're not actually testing the
same kernels and there's some other changes (xfs most likely, but
really it could be anywhere) which is causing this regression. I'm
rather convinced now after this test that it's not my stuff.

Thanks, Daniel
