I feel a bit awkward explicitly leaking kernel pointers like that. All
this is accessible by root only (for now) so its not too harmfull, but
sitll.

Also, I don't think we want to expose the struct lockdep_map thing, a
regular void * would be better.

As to removing the waittime, I'm not sure, in this case, yes, but if you
want some other processing that hooks straight into the tracepoints
instead of using a logging structure, it might be useful.

Removing that do_div() from there and exposing waittime as u64 in nsec,
for sure, that do_div() is just silly.
