[PATCH 3.18 22/28] ALSA: seq: Avoid invalid lockdep class warning

3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@xxxxxxx>

commit 3510c7aa069aa83a2de6dab2b41401a198317bdc upstream.

The recent fix for adding rwsem nesting annotation was using the given
"hop" argument as the lock subclass key.  Although the idea itself
works, it may trigger a kernel warning like:
  BUG: looking up invalid subclass: 8
since the lockdep has a smaller number of subclasses (8) than we
currently allow for the hops there (10).

The current definition is merely a sanity check for avoiding the too
deep delivery paths, and the 8 hops are already enough.  So, as a
quick fix, just follow the max hops as same as the max lockdep
