infradeads.org hehe

can this crash be reproduced without lockdep? Normally when I see
crashes like this its crashing because the lock itself is stomped on
(use after free, for example), and lockdep happens to be the one to
touch it first (the lockdep state is by far the largest bit of the
spinlock data too).
