[PATCH 4.4 17/45] libnvdimm: fix reconfig_mutex, mmap_sem, and jbd2_handle lockdep splat




4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 0beb2012a1722633515c8aaa263c73449636c893 upstream.

Holding the reconfig_mutex over a potential userspace fault sets up a
lockdep dependency chain between filesystem-DAX and the libnvdimm ioctl
path. Move the user access outside of the lock.

     [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
     4.11.0-rc3+ #13 Tainted: G        W  O
     -------------------------------------------------------
     fallocate/16656 is trying to acquire lock:
      (&nvdimm_bus->reconfig_mutex){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffffa00080b1>] nvdimm_bus_lock+0x21/0x30 [libnvdimm]
     but task is already holding lock:
      (jbd2_handle){++++..}, at: [<ffffffff813b4944>] start_this_handle+0x104/0x460

    which lock already depends on the new lock.

    the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:
