Subject[PATCH v2 4/4] lockdep: Add a boot parameter enabling to track page locks using lockdep and disable it by default
Date
To track page locks using lockdep, we need a huge memory space for
lockdep_map per page. So, it would be better to make it disabled by
default and provide a boot parameter to turn it on. Do it.
