Subject[PATCH v2 1/3] locking/spinlock_debug: Reduce lockup suspected message clutter
Date
When the debug spinlock code detects a lockup, it will print out an
error messages as well as the backtraces of all the CPUs. However, if
more than one CPUs are waiting on that lock, multiple lockup messages
will be printed leading to garbled output.

To reduce clutter in the console log, now only one of the lock waiters
will be allowed to print out the CPU backtraces.

Since break_lock, like lockup, can only have a value of 0 or 1, its
size is now reduced so that on a 64-bit architecture, the size of the
raw_spinlock structure won't increase whether CONFIG_GENERIC_LOCKBREAK
is defined or not.
