SubjectRe: sparse breakage triggered by rcu_read_lock() lockdep annotations
Err,

Sparse does not support the local label syntax yet. It just treats the
second label "x:" as the same as the first one. Then the linearize
code gets serious confused when it saw one label get define in two
places.

The fix seems not trivial from the first look.
