[RFC PATCH 01/12] locking/lockdep: Rework lockdep_set_novalidate_class()




The current lockdep_set_novalidate_class() implementation is like
a hack. It assigns a special class key for that lock and calls
lockdep_init_map() twice.

This patch changes the implementation to make it more general so that
it can be used by other special lock class types. A new "type" field
is added to both the lockdep_map and lock_class structures.

The new field can now be used to designate a lock and a class object
as novalidate. The lockdep_set_novalidate_class() call, however, should
be called before lock initialization which calls lockdep_init_map().
