Hi again Christoph,

Apparently the reason I haven't been seeing this problem myself is
because I've been testing code in an experimental branch in linux-gfs2,
and one of my other patches already fixed the problem. I just pushed my
experimental branch to linux-gfs2/for-next.next4 and the patch that
fixes it is 631e950b2eeb ("gfs2: fix deadlock in gfs2_ail1_empty
withdraw"). Perhaps you can cherry-pick that patch (and others if 
warranted) into your test branch and see if it behaves itself?
