Subject[PATCH] locking/rwsem: Add DEBUG_RWSEMS to look for lock/unlock mismatches
Date
For a rwsem, locking can either be exclusive or shared. The corresponding
exclusive or shared unlock must be used. Otherwise, the protected data
structures may get corrupted or the lock may be in an inconsistent state.

In order to detect such anomaly, a new configuration option DEBUG_RWSEMS
is added which can be enabled to look for such mismatches and print
warnings that that happens.
