Subject[PATCH 6/7] lockdep: Print a nice description of simple irq inversion
From: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com>

The lockdep output can be pretty cryptic, having a nice output
can save a lot of head scratching. When a simple irq inversion scenario
is detected by lockdep (lock A taken in interrupt context but also in
thread context without disabling interrupts) we get the following output:

other info that might help us debug this:
Possible unsafe locking scenario:

CPU0
----
lock(lockA);
<Interrupt>
lock(lockA);
*** DEADLOCK ***
