[PATCH 0/4] printk: Remove lockdep_off() and wakeups -v3

From: Peter Zijlstra
Date: Tue Jun 21 2011 - 11:40:40 EST

Last iteration of the printk() rework which removes the lockdep_off() hackery
and removes the need for printk() to issue wakeups, thereby increasing
reliability from variuos contexts.

Patch 0b5e1c5255 from -tip needs to be reverted (or better dropped), due
us discovering why doing up() under logbuf_lock was important -- thanks
Andrew, Ingo!

This series was tested on a lockdep enabled kernel with the below hack
included, which generated a nice splat.
