So does anybody have a 'grep' for it?

Because we sure as hell don't want to find them one by one, especially
since this thing only shows up in a fairly rare configuration (most people
do _not_ enable lockdep).

So that commit really _is_ broken. I'm seriously going to just revert it
if the plan of action is nothing better than "wait for people to report
yet another missed conversion". This is _not_ how we convert users.
