That's a false positive.  While the ilock can be taken in reclaim the
allocation here is done before the inode is added to the inode cache.

The patch below should help avoiding the warning:

Seems ok to me. I hate to see the BUG() added but I guess in this case
something truly bizarre would have to happen for the ilock to fail on
this inode.

on irc you sugggested ASSERT(0); instead of BUG();

That would mean that instead of bombing out here, we do it
in xfs debug kernels only, which is a good thing. However,
do we just silently ignore it in non debug kernels, and
later try to unlock without locking first?
Maybe the following be better:

        if (lock_flags) {
                if (!xfs_ilock_nowait(ip, lock_flags)) {
                        error = EAGAIN;
                        goto out_destroy;
Or just keep the BUG(); , as it shouldn't happen (we hope).

I might prefer that
