With omap2plus_defconfig my build produces (vmlinux size):
Base: 99905522
with my series: 99908385 (base + 2863)
with Peter Zijlstra's patch: 99910625 (base + 5103)

The reason for this is that we will only have
struct lock_class_key { };
in case of !CONFIG_LOCKDEP. On ARM however CONFIG_LOCKDEP is enabled by
default, while the CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCKDEP is disabled.

So it does add more data to our default omap2plus config.

Tony: do you have preference on the way we fix this issue?

As I recall there is a plan to remove the hwmod static database and move it or
generate it from DT? Not sure when and how this will be done, but will it
affect the lockdep_set_class() way?
