I bet copy_hugetlb_page_range() is causing your complaints.  It takes
the dest_mm->page_table_lock followed by src_mm->page_table_lock inside
a loop and hasn't yet been converted to call spin_lock_nested().  A
harmless false positive.

I am not sure how well LTP is tracking mainline development in this
area.  How do these patches do with the libhugetlbfs test suite?  We are
adding support for ginormous pages (1GB, 16GB, etc) but it is not
complete.  Should run fine with 2M pages though.

Before you ask, here is the link:
