Sure! I -think- that if you remove the first "if" statement in
lockdep_rcu_dereference() in kernel/lockdep.c, you will get lots of them
all at once. Maybe more than your console log is able to hold...

So another approach would be to print only the first 100 or some such.

It -looks- to me that you could make __debug_locks_off() atomically
decrement a counter rather than just setting it to zero, see
include/linux/debug_locks.h. I suspect that atomic_dec_not_zero()
would work very well for you here.

Peter probably knows a better approach, but those would work.

Thanx, Paul
