    this patch should be moot meanwhile. Earlier versions of the lock
    validator produced false positives for certain read-locking constructs.

    i have undone the patch:

    lock-validator-sk_callback_lock-workaround.patch

    and there doesnt seem to be any false positives popping up. Please dont
    remove it from -mm yet, i'll test this some more and will do the removal
    in the lock validator queue refactoring, ok?
