From: Paul E. McKenney on

This patchset contains ten fixes for various lockdep splats. The first
two sets are repostings/revisions, the rest new. The new patches have
all been posted to LKML, but this is the first time for inclusion.

o rcu: v2: optionally leave lockdep enabled after RCU lockdep splat
This is a repost that makes the one-splat-per-boot the default,
but allows those who want multiple splats to get this behavior
via a new CONFIG_PROVE_RCU_REPEATEDLY configuration parameter.
(Original from Lai Jiangshan.)
