SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] lockdep: allow user to disable CONFIG_TRACE_IRQFLAGS
From
CC: ARM

2010/5/5 <tom.leiming@gmail.com>:
> From: Ming Lei <tom.leiming@gmail.com>

> There is still the lost irq-on tracing issue on ARM,
> (see http://marc.info/?l=linux-arm-kernel&m=126047420005553&w=2)
> which may disable lockdep after kernel boot, seems no
> good solution for the issue up to now.
>
> The patch exports the config option of CONFIG_TRACE_IRQFLAGS
> and allows user to disable it for support of checking circular
> dead lock only if irq flags tracing can't work correctly always.
