For the open coded checks, I'm seeing a small (1-2% ish) cost for bare
metal on workload 1). I don't see (via code inspection) any additional
overhead in xen either. While negligible in the overall of things, I do
like the idea of lockdep handling it nonetheless.

I can add the open coded version if people really feel that it would catch
more bugs (no lockdep users out there in production afaik :) in the long
term; but if lockdep is where things are headed...

Thanks,

[PATCH -next 3/2] fs/epoll: robustify irq safety with lockdep_assert_irqs_enabled()

Sprinkle lockdep_assert_irqs_enabled() checks in the functions that
do not save and restore interrupts when dealing with the ep->wq.lock.
These are ep_scan_ready_list() and those called by epoll_ctl():
ep_insert, ep_modify and ep_remove.
