This deadlock looks like vmem exhaustion:
1) Threads 19955, 26028, 25222 and 17766 wait for the vnode
This lock is held by thread 0x96ddc9e0 waiting in vmem_xalloc
for vmem to become available.
2) Thread 4849 waits for vnode lock 0x926cbb04.
This lock is held by thread 0x96ddd4e0 also waiting
in vmem_xalloc for vmem to become available.
Has nothing to do with layerfs, no "VOP_LOCK > layer_lock > VOP_LOCK"
sequences in the backtrace of the blocked threads.
Could we conclude the patch fixes your issue with layerfs deadlock?
