SubjectODEBUG: selftest warnings failed 4 != 5 (WARNING: at lib/debugobjects.c:908 check_results.constprop.9)
Hello everybody,

I recently enabled a CONFIG_DEBUG_OBJECTS kconfig option, and this is what I got when booting

Kernel is booting however without bigger problems. I have some lockdep
problems latter, but I'm not sure if this is related (already reported
few days ago to few people including Andrew).

I cannot say when bug was introduced, because well, I noticed it just
today when inspecting some kernel messages in more detail, and because I
had previously not CONFIG_DEBUG_OBJECTS not set in kernel config.

This is IBM Thinkpad T43, with Intel Pentium-M (32-bit). Was using
gcc-4.6.2-14 from Debian sid.

Oh, It looks that it already was noticed by Stephen Boyd on -mm kernel
( https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/1/14/132 ), but now looks to happen on
mainline. Can a fix be rechecked and merged?

Or should I start using -mm kernel for testing more fresh code?

Regards,
Witek
