Subject[PATCH] Silence warning if CONFIG_LOCKDEP isn't set
Since commit c9a4962881929df7f1ef6e63e1b9da304faca4dd ("nfsd: make
client_lock per net") compiling nfs4state.o without CONFIG_LOCKDEP set,
triggers this GCC warning:
fs/nfsd/nfs4state.c: In function ‘free_client’:
fs/nfsd/nfs4state.c:1051:19: warning: unused variable ‘nn’ [-Wunused-variable]

The cause of that warning is that lockdep_assert_held() compiles away if
CONFIG_LOCKDEP is not set. Silence this warning by using the argument to
lockdep_assert_held() as a nop if CONFIG_LOCKDEP is not set.

Signed-off-by: Paul Bolle <>
0) Compile tested only.

1) This patch triggers a checkpatch false positive:
WARNING: Single statement macros should not use a do {} while (0) loop

2) Review is rather needed here, since I'm not sure what, if any, the
downsides are of this patch for all other "calls" of
lockdep_assert_held(). Besides, a cleaner solution might be to simply
drop lockdep_assert_held() in free_client(). There are only three
callers of that function and it seems obvious that all three do hold
