Subjectlockdep oddity
The lock validator gives me this (latest -mm and 2.6.18-rc6):

=====================================
[ BUG: bad unlock balance detected! ]
-------------------------------------
swapper/0 is trying to release lock (resource_lock) at:
[<0000000000042842>] request_resource+0x52/0x88
but there are no more locks to release!

The reason is that the BUILD_LOCK_OPS macros in kernel/lockdep.c don't contain
any of the *_acquire calls, while all of the _unlock functions contain a
*_release call. Hence I get immediately unbalanced locks.

CONFIG_PREEMPT,
CONFIG_SMP,
!CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING,
CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC,
and
CONFIG_LOCKDEP

will generate this code.

Found this will debugging some random memory corruptions that happen when
CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING and CONFIG_PROFILE_LIKELY are both on.
Switching both off or having only one of them on seems to work.
