After disabling both CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCKING_API_SELFTESTS and netconsole
(using current mainline) I get a login prompt, and also...

Because hpet_rtc_interrupt()'s call to get_rtc_time() ends up
resolving to include/asm-generic/rtc.h's (hilariously inlined)
get_rtc_time(), which does spin_unlock_irq() from hard IRQ context.

That warning in lockdep.c should have a comment explaining to readers under
which circumstances it will trigger, and what they did wrong.  In fact if
I've interpreted it correctly I don't see why it's a DEBUG_LOCKS_WARN_ON
thing at all?  It should be a first-class lockdep warning?

The obvious patch fixes it:

but that code really needs help.

Bernhard, I believe the checklist items in Documentation/SubmitChecklist
would have prevented this at the source.


ObProcessObservation: afacit the offending commit went mailing list ->
git-x86 -> mainline in about three days flat, a week after the merge
window had opened.
