Subject[PATCH v3 05/20] seqlock: lockdep assert non-preemptibility on seqcount_t write
Date
Preemption must be disabled before entering a sequence count write side
critical section. Failing to do so, the seqcount read side can preempt
the write side section and spin for the entire scheduler tick. If that
reader belongs to a real-time scheduling class, it can spin forever and
the kernel will livelock.

Assert through lockdep that preemption is disabled for seqcount writers.
