Argh, indeed.
I thought might_sleep() only wrapped __might_sleep(__FILE__, __LINE__)

Ok.

Another idea: if cond_resched() was a macro and __might_sleep() was
called inside, the given __FILE__ __LINE__ would be much more useful.

Only the backtraces would be useful in the current state, __FILE__
and __LINE__ point to sched.h, which is not exactly what is needed,
right?

Thanks,
Frederic.
