SubjectRe: [RFC][PATCH 7/7] lockdep: spin_lock_nest_lock()

OK, so the expected usage is:

spin_lock(&outer_lock);
/* take in any order */
spin_lock_nest_lock(&inner[0], &outer_lock);
spin_lock_nest_lock(&inner[2], &outer_lock);
spin_lock_nest_lock(&inner[1], &outer_lock);
...

?

And it's OK to

1. take inner locks one at a time without holding the outer lock
2. use plain spin_lock on inner locks when you're taking them one at
a time, and
3. release the outer lock before releasing the inner locks

but it's not OK to try to use different outer locks for a given inner lock.

Yes?
