Add each lock class to the all_lock_classes list when it is
first registered.

Previously, lock classes were added to all_lock_classes when
the lock class was first used.  Since one of the uses of the
list is to find unused locks, this didn't work well.

You mean in lockdep_proc.c to generate the statistics?

Another potential issue might be count_matching_names() generating a
wrong class version.

Yes, that's where I noticed it.  On my platform, there was one
unused lock which was missed.

I haven't looked into that issue yet.

OK, I'll clarify the description and take the patch. Thanks!
