lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint
Impact: provide useful missing info for developers Kernel taint can occur in several situations such as warnings, load of prorietary or staging modules, bad page, etc... But when such taint happens, a developer might still be working on the kernel, expecting that lockdep is still enabled. But a taint disables lockdep without ever warning about it. Such a kernel behaviour doesn't really help for kernel development. This patch adds this missing warning. Since the taint is done most of the time after the main message that explain the real source issue, it seems safe to warn about it inside add_taint() so that it appears at last, without hurting the main information. v2: Use a generic helper to disable lockdep instead of an open coded xchg().
