locking/lockdep: Make global debug_locks* variables read-mostly
Make the frequently used lockdep global variable debug_locks read-mostly. As debug_locks_silent is sometime used together with debug_locks, it is also made read-mostly so that they can be close together. With false cacheline sharing, cacheline contention problem can happen depending on what get put into the same cacheline as debug_locks.
