Subject: [PATCH v2] lockdep: Show address of "struct lockdep_map" at print_lock().

Since "struct lockdep_map" is embedded into lock objects, we can know
which instance of a lock object is acquired using hlock->instance field.
This will help finding which threads are causing a lock contention.

Currently, print_lock() is printing hlock->acquire_ip field in both
"[<%px>]" and "%pS" format. But "[<%px>]" is little useful nowadays, for
we use scripts/faddr2line which receives "%pS" for finding the location
in the source code. And I want to reduce amount of output, for
debug_show_all_locks() might print a lot.

Therefore, this patch replaces "[<%px>]" for printing hlock->acquire_ip
field with "%p" for printing hlock->instance field.

[ 251.305475] 3 locks held by a.out/31106:
[ 251.308949] #0: 00000000b0f753ba (&mm->mmap_sem){++++}, at: copy_process.part.41+0x10d5/0x1fe0
[ 251.314283] #1: 00000000ef64d539 (&mm->mmap_sem/1){+.+.}, at: copy_process.part.41+0x10fe/0x1fe0
[ 251.319618] #2: 00000000b41a282e (&mapping->i_mmap_rwsem){++++}, at: copy_process.part.41+0x12f2/0x1fe0
