This should say something about "do not allocate memory in the
IRQ handler or so." And I think the flag is __GFP_WAIT. Look at
allocate_slab() in slub.c:

        if (flags & __GFP_WAIT)
                local_irq_enable();

The local_irq_enable() calls into lockdep with trace_hardirqs_on().

Other than that:
