lockdep: Fix check_usage_backwards() error message
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 26 Jan 2010 18:16:41 +0000 (19:16 +0100)]
Lockdep has found the real bug, but the output doesn't look right to me:

> =========================================================

"HARDIRQ-unsafe" and "this lock took another" looks wrong, afaics.

The stack-trace shows that this lock (ctrl_lock) was taken under
->siglock (which is hopefully irq-safe).

This is a clear typo in check_usage_backwards() where we tell the print a
fancy routine we're forwards.
