lockdep: spin_lock_nest_lock()
Expose the new lock protection lock. This can be used to annotate places where we take multiple locks of the same class and avoid deadlocks by always taking another (top-level) lock first. NOTE: we're still bound to the MAX_LOCK_DEPTH (48) limit. Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
