Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 3/9] rcu: disable lockdep checking in RCU list-traversal primitives
Date
From: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

The theory is that use of bare rcu_dereference() is more prone to error
than use of the RCU list-traversal primitives. Therefore, disable lockdep
RCU read-side critical-section checking in these primitives for the time
being. Once all of the rcu_dereference() uses have been dealt with, it
may be time to re-enable lockdep checking for the RCU list-traversal
primitives.
