[PATCH 00/12] various lockdep patches
From: Peter Zijlstra

The first 3 patches provide a new lockdep check, it verifies we don't hold any
locks when returning to userspace.
Could the various arch maintainers that have support for lockdep help out
with placing this hook?
A journal_start annotation:
Up until this point stuff should be safe to merge (assuming there are no
objections and bugs.. :-)
The rest of the series annotates lock_page():
rework lock_page() API:
actuall lockdep annotation:
Part of that is re-working the lock_page() API a bit. It introduces
trylock_page(), and removes all the raw *PageLock() usage.
I've compile and boot tested this series on x86_64 (with and without lockdep).
And it completes an LTP run with lockdep enabled.
Andrew, can we start by pusing the lock_page() API rework into -mm?
[ this series is against -linus, but if you're willing I'll do some
patches against -mm ]
