Subjectbug: ftrace & lockdep badness
Hi Steven,

enabling preemptirqsoff tracing gives me this on a lockdep enabled kernel:

Badness at kernel/lockdep.c:2894

INFO: lockdep is turned off.

Seems to be that the following happens:

__local_bh_disable() calls add_preempt_count() which adds something to
After this addition softirq_count() will return something != 0.
However current->softirqs_enabled is still 1 since we haven't called
trace_softirqs_off() yet.
But we call trace_preempt_off() instead which will grab a lock in the
ringbuffer code and that will trigger this check in lockdep.c:

if (!hardirq_count()) {
if (softirq_count())

I assume this is a known bug. Is there any fix available?
