[kernel] problem with swap file on fat partition

I tried to setup a swap file on a fat partition on sd card (using kernel linux-openmoko-2.6.28-2.6.28-oe1+git~c06ae36180dee695aa25bbae869b2aa26-r3), but the swapon command hangs; /proc/<pid>/wchan says that it hangs in _fat_bmap.

In fs/fat/inode.c:205, there is some mutex_lock protecting call to generic_block_bmap. After commenting it out, everything works nicely. But I assume this is not the correct fix...

Doesn't sounds like it's down to anything we're doing to the kernel in particular.

If you want to probe deeper what's happening, there are a bunch of mutex deadlock debugging CONFIG options that you should enable, it can detect deadlocks and dump the "call stack" of who holds what -- that'll shine more light on the exact source of the madness.

Sure, I guess that it's an upstream problem. I was just wondering if there is anybody knowing about why exactly is the mutex needed. Anyway, commenting it out works around the problem, so maybe somebody finds it helpful...
