Thanks for your opinion, Peter.
I'll work on reducing size of events later. Hashing is a good idea.
I think indexing is also way to reduce size.

And I want lockdep_map to have another thing, type of lock.
For example, mutex and spinlock has completely different acquired time
and attributes,
so I want to separate these things. If lockdep_map has member
to express type, things will be easy.

How do you think?
