Subject[PATCH 27/32] locking/lockdep: Remove redundant softirqs on check
Date
It makes no more sense to check for redundant softirqs on because
trace_softirqs_on() is no more symmetrical to trace_softirqs_off().

Indeed trace_softirqs_off() is called whenever we know that all softirq
vectors have been disabled. And trace_softirqs_on() is called everytime
we enable at least one vector. So curr->softirqs_enabled may well remain
true throughout subsequent calls.

FIXME: Perhaps we should rename those functions. Another solution would
be to make curr->softirqs_enabled to record the last value of
local_softirqs_enabled() so we could track again redundant calls.
