"loop: Use worker per cgroup instead of kworker" in patch series
"Charge loop device i/o to issuing cgroup", v3.  introduced a lock
ordering bug. The previously existing lo->lo_lock was always acquired
as spin_lock_irq but never actually used in irq context. The above
patch started to use this lock in irq context which triggered a
lockdep warning on sysfs reading.

Fix this by executing file_path outside of the lock.
