I am Ok with holding on to the commit for mainline. But I would like it into
linux-next so that we and others can get some more velocity on fixing the
remaining issues (and any maintainers who have not yet accepted patches to
review those). We fixed most of them but there could be some more lurking.
Paul, how does that sound?

Either way, we should consider that this feature is turned on only for
lockdep-enabled kernels so it is only used for debugging.
