And once we do that, we can work on getting the irq tracing
incorporated into a jump_label type that we could possibly enable
lockdep at start up, and then disable it later, even on production
systems! That is, to be able to turn it off and bring the system back
up to full speed.

It would also allow for irq tracing too.

Some inquiring minds have been asking about this ;-)
