Subject[PATCH] mce: fix RCU lockdep from mce_log()
From
Date
Hi,

Please review this patch, I am not very familiar with MCE/RCU so I'm not sure that this is the correct fix (otherwise consider it a bug report :)).
This does "fix" the message though and I can use MCE normally.

Thanks,
Davidlohr

At this point the lockdep_is_held(&mce_read_mutex) call is failing.
So check if the mce_read_mutex is held before derefencing instead of using rcu_dereference_check_mce()
