Not sure how that would be done since _raw_spin_lock isn't declared in 
this scope.

Taking a second look, however, I think the patch doesn't need to modify 
raw_spin_lock_nest_lock() for the problem being reported and evaluating 
the parameter of type struct lockdep_map * probably is meaningless.

Bart, is it possible to just get away with the raw_spin_lock_nested() 
change?
