Subject[PATCH 4.9 09/12] locking/spinlock/debug: Remove spinlock lockup detection code
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Waiman Long <longman@redhat.com>

commit bc88c10d7e6900916f5e1ba3829d66a9de92b633 upstream.

The current spinlock lockup detection code can sometimes produce false
positives because of the unfairness of the locking algorithm itself.

So the lockup detection code is now removed. Instead, we are relying
on the NMI watchdog to detect potential lockup. We won't have lockup
detection if the watchdog isn't running.

The commented-out read-write lock lockup detection code are also
removed.
