I guess you didn't see this oops in your tests.  Can you show that the
situation in this commit is no longer possible?

    [DLM] fix oops in kref_put when removing a lockspace
    
    Now that the lockspace struct is freed when the last sysfs object is released
    this patch prevents use of that lockspace by sysfs. We attempt to re-get the
    lockspace from the lockspace list and fail the request if it has been removed.
