Subject[PATCH] rtnetlink: add rtnl_lock debug log
Date
We often encounter system hangs caused by certain processes
holding rtnl_lock for a long time. Even if there is a lock
detection mechanism in Linux, it is a bit troublesome and
affects the system performance. We hope to add a lightweight
debugging mechanism for detecting rtnl_lock.

Up to now, we have discovered and solved some potential bugs
through such debug information of this lightweight rtnl_lock,
which is helpful for us.

When you say Y for RTNL_LOCK_DEBUG, then the kernel will detect
if any function hold rtnl_lock too long and some key information
will be printed to help identify the issue point.

i.e: from the following logs, we can clear know that the pid=5546
RfxSender_4 process hold rtnl_lock for a long time, causing the
system hang. And we can also speculate that the delay operation
may be performed in devinet_ioctl(), resulting in rtnl_lock was
not released in time.
