OK, now I see what you mean that snippet...

[ kernel/time/timer.c ]
...
int del_timer_sync(struct timer_list *timer)
{
#ifdef CONFIG_LOCKDEP
unsigned long flags;

/*
* If lockdep gives a backtrace here, please reference
* the synchronization rules above.
*/
local_irq_save(flags);
lock_map_acquire(&timer->lockdep_map);
lock_map_release(&timer->lockdep_map);
local_irq_restore(flags);
#endif
...

So, I could try to see with CONFIG_LOCKDEP=n ?
