Hm, you are right. It's a mutex.
The warning occurs only if I turned on CONFIG_PREEMPT=y.

add_disk() is called without md->type_lock.

Call flow is like this:

dm_create
  alloc_dev
    blk_alloc_queue
    alloc_disk
    add_disk
      blk_queue_bypass_end [with 3.7-rc2]

table_load
  dm_lock_md_type [takes md->type_lock]
  dm_setup_md_queue
    blk_init_allocated_queue [when DM_TYPE_REQUEST_BASED]
      elevator_init
        blkcg_activate_policy
          blk_queue_bypass_start <-- THIS triggers the warning
          blk_queue_bypass_end
      blk_queue_bypass_end [with 3.6]
  dm_unlock_md_type

blk_queue_bypass_start() in blkcg_activate_policy was nested call,
that did nothing, with 3.6.
With 3.7-rc2, it becomes the initial call and does
actual draining stuff.
