Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 01/48] rcu: optionally leave lockdep enabled after RCU lockdep splat
Date
From: Lai Jiangshan <laijs@cn.fujitsu.com>

There is no need to disable lockdep after an RCU lockdep splat,
so remove the debug_lockdeps_off() from lockdep_rcu_dereference().
To avoid repeated lockdep splats, use a static variable in the inlined
rcu_dereference_check() and rcu_dereference_protected() macros so that
a given instance splats only once, but so that multiple instances can
be detected per boot.

This is controlled by a new config variable CONFIG_PROVE_RCU_REPEATEDLY,
which is disabled by default. This provides the normal lockdep behavior
by default, but permits people who want to find multiple RCU-lockdep
splats per boot to easily do so.
