It's not nice to change something after you've sent a pull request -
there's no way of knowing when Linus actually pulls it before he's
published it, and if he gets something different then it can raise

So, it's gone in as-is, and, as I'm now intending asking for another
pull request soo soon after my previous one, this is something that
we will have to live with probably for the remainder of the week.

Note that you should, by default, build your development kernels with
lockdep enabled, it's there as a debugging tool to help you find
logical locking errors faster than people can provoke deadlocks.
