Subject[PATCH 3.12 06/38] kernel/panic.c: turn off locks debug before releasing console lock
Date
From: Vitaly Kuznetsov <vkuznets@redhat.com>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

===============

commit 7625b3a0007decf2b135cb47ca67abc78a7b1bc1 upstream.

Commit 08d78658f393 ("panic: release stale console lock to always get the
logbuf printed out") introduced an unwanted bad unlock balance report when
panic() is called directly and not from OOPS (e.g. from out_of_memory()).
The difference is that in case of OOPS we disable locks debug in
oops_enter() and on direct panic call nobody does that.

Fixes: 08d78658f393 ("panic: release stale console lock to always get the logbuf printed out")
