[PATCH] lockdep: debug_show_all_locks & debug_show_held_locks vs. debug_locks
Jarek Poplawski [Thu, 22 Mar 2007 08:11:28 +0000 (00:11 -0800)]
lockdep's data shouldn't be used when debug_locks == 0 because it's not
updated after this, so it's more misleading than helpful.

PS: probably lockdep's current-> fields should be reset after it turns
debug_locks off: so, after printing a bug report, but before return from
exported functions, but there are really a lot of these possibilities (e.g.
 after DEBUG_LOCKS_WARN_ON), so, something could be missed.  (Of course
direct use of this fields isn't recommended either.)
