5.2-CURRENT yesterday: GIANT-LOCKED, lock order reversal

Built world and new kernel from yesterday's CVSup and noticed a bunch
of [GIANT-LOCKED] in the bootup.  Then, after it came up, it spewed
errors about lock order reversal. I'm not clueful enough to understand
what it's trying to tell me :-(

Here's a "uname -a" info, then the dmesg output with GIANT-LOCK and
lock order reversal. Should I be concerned? Any work-arounds?  Thanks.
