It probably makes it inconsistent in the least. I will add the check for
the rcu_bh_lock_map in a separate patch, if that's Ok with you - since I also
want to update the rcu_read_lock_bh_held() logic in the same patch.

That rcu_read_lock_bh_held() could also just return !preemptible as Peter
suggested for the bh case.

Thanks. Depending on whether there is any other feedback, I will work on the
bh_ stuff as a separate patch on top of this series, or work it into the next
series revision if I'm reposting. Hopefully that sounds Ok to you.

thanks,
