Daniel Vetter - Nov. 29, 2017, 3:41 p.m.
Ideally we'd create the key through a macro at the real callers and
pass it all the way down. This would give us better coverage for cases
where a bunch of kthreads are created for the same thing.
But this gets the job done meanwhile and unblocks our CI. Refining
later on is always possible.

v2:
- make it compile
- use the right map (Tvrtko)

v3:

lockdep insist on a static key, so the cheap way didn't work. Wire
2 keys through all the callers.

I didn't extend this up to alloc_workqueue because the
lockdep_invariant_state() call should separate the work functions from
the workqueue kthread logic and prevent cross-release state from
leaking between unrelated work queues that happen to reuse the same
kthreads.

v4: CI found more compile fail :-/

Any comments on this issue here? Is there a real patch we should use
instead of this quick hack?

As mentioned in the cover letter, I don't really have much clue, this is
more an elaborate bug report than anything like a real code submission :-)

Thanks, Daniel
