rcu: Give different levels of the rcu_node hierarchy distinct lockdep names
Previously, each level of the rcu_node hierarchy had the same rather unimaginative name: "&rcu_node_class[i]". This makes lockdep diagnostics involving these lockdep classes less helpful than would be nice. This patch fixes this by giving each level of the rcu_node hierarchy a distinct name: "rcu_node_level_0", "rcu_node_level_1", and so on. This version of the patch includes improved diagnostics suggested by Josh Triplett and Peter Zijlstra. Signed-off-by: Paul E.
