I am sorry for the reverting this patch. It's also my fault that
I didn't check lockdep. But, We decided to keep this patch in our product.
Freeze fail is a real problem we've had for the last two years,
whereas lockdep's notice is not a real problem.
We hope this issue will be resolved soon.

Special thanks to Oleg,
Chanho
