It means the lock_class_key ended up in non-static storage.

In practise it often means you initialized a on-stack structure
incorrectly. DECLARE_WAIT_QUEUE_HEAD() vs
DECLARE_WAIT_QUEUE_HEAD_ONSTACK() for example.

/me & git fetch mm && git checkout mm/v2.6.25-rc5-mm1

/me twiddles thumbs..

/me tries to untangle the sysfs stuff, finds nothing wrong, looks at
semaphore code, and.. the winner is: Matthew messed up the semaphores.

Tssk, rewriting locking primitives and not using lockdep...

Compile tested defconfig with lockdep and !lockdep.

---
Subject: lockdep: fixup the new semaphore implementation
The new semaphores failed to properly initialize its spinlock. Non
static spinlocks should use spin_lock_init(). Alternatively you should
supply a static key yourself.
