Subject[PATCH v2 00/17] Support for read-write lock deadlock detection
Hi Peter and Ingo,

Historically, the read-write lock (recursive-read locks included) is not
well supported in lockdep. This patchset attempts to solve this problem
sound and complete.

The bulk of the algorithm is in patch #10, which is actually not complex at
all. Hopefully, it simply works.

Now that we have read-write locks suppported, we have all the 262 cases
passed, though I have to flip some cases which, I think, are wrong.

P.S. To Boqun, I haven't got time to read your patchset except that I did
carefully read your design doc and learnt from it a lot. It is helpful.
Please give this patchset at least a look.

Change from v1:

- As Peter pointed out the assumption that a lock class cannot ever be read
and recursive read does not hold. The value of LOCK_TYPE_RECURSIVE is
changed to 3 from 2, which maintains that if type1 and type2 are exclusive
then type1 & type2 == 0. And since it is legal for a task can have a read
and then a recursive read lock, we allow this in deadlock check.

- Some typo fixes and rewording in comments or changelog.
