I misread the perf trace. I wasn't spinning on a lock I was spinning
on the IOV iterator. It just happened to push the lock to the top of
the perf trace. I bisected it down to the recent change in
iterate_and_advance which was already fixed in Linus's tree in commit
19f18459330f "do 'fold checks into iterate_and_advance()" right'.
