Subject[PATCH v3 00/18] locking/lockdep: Add comments and make some code
Hi Peter,

I recently looked at some system hang issues. While at it, I tried to use
and understand lockdep. These patches are made as a result. I believe they
should have helped me, so hopefully they do for others as well.

Many thanks to Bart, Joe, and Peter for their valuable comments.

Change from v2:
- Removed indent adjustments only patch
- Removed unnecessary if to else-if patch
- Made changes according to comments
- Added another doc addition patch

Change from v1:
- Rebased the patch series.
- Added more no-functional-change patches.
- Removed zapped locks in lock chains printing patch, which was a band-aid.
The real problem was recently fixed by Bart.
