OK, I'm having a look here; its all new to me so bear with me.

blkdev_open() calls
  do_open(bdev, ...,BD_MUTEX_NORMAL) and takes
    mutex_lock_nested(&bdev->bd_mutex, BD_MUTEX_NORMAL)

then something fails, and we're thrown to:

out_first: where
    if (bdev != bdev->bd_contains)
      blkdev_put(bdev->bd_contains) which is
        __blkdev_put(bdev->bd_contains, BD_MUTEX_NORMAL) which does
          mutex_lock_nested(&bdev->bd_contains->bd_mutex, BD_MUTEX_NORMAL) <--- lockdep trigger

When going to out_first, dbev->bd_contains is either bdev or whole, and
since we take the branch it must be whole. So it seems to me the
following patch would be the right one:
