    locking/lockdep: Rework FS_RECLAIM annotation · d92a8cfc
    Peter Zijlstra authored
    A while ago someone, and I cannot find the email just now, asked if we
    could not implement the RECLAIM_FS inversion stuff with a 'fake' lock
    like we use for other things like workqueues etc. I think this should
    be possible which allows reducing the 'irq' states and will reduce the
    amount of __bfs() lookups we do.
    Removing the 1 IRQ state results in 4 less __bfs() walks per
    dependency, improving lockdep performance. And by moving this
    annotation out of the lockdep code it becomes easier for the mm people
    to extend.
