rcu: Make RCU lockdep check the lockdep_recursion variable
Paul E. McKenney [Thu, 15 Apr 2010 19:50:39 +0000 (12:50 -0700)]
The lockdep facility temporarily disables lockdep checking by
incrementing the current->lockdep_recursion variable.  Such
disabling happens in NMIs and in other situations where lockdep
might expect to recurse on itself.

This patch therefore checks current->lockdep_recursion, disabling RCU
lockdep splats when this variable is non-zero.  In addition, this patch
removes the "likely()", as suggested by Lai Jiangshan.
