the unlock was not visible within the diff context, the full patch is:

after close_tree starts the "fs_closing" check will prevent further
calls to writeback. I don't remember from who the patch acutally comes
from (via irc), it was noted as a workaround for the cleaner deadlock
until it gets fully solved (re your patches
