The xfs filesystem can exceed the current lockdep 
MAX_LOCK_DEPTH, because when deleting an entire cluster of inodes,
they all get locked in xfs_ifree_cluster().  The normal cluster
size is 8192 bytes, and with the default (and minimum) inode size 
of 256 bytes, that's up to 32 inodes that get locked.  Throw in a 
few other locks along the way, and 40 seems enough to get me through
all the tests in the xfsqa suite on 4k blocks.  (block sizes
above 8K will still exceed this though, I think)
