Subject: [PATCH v2 05/17] locking/lockdep: Rename deadlock check functions

Deadlock checks are performed at two places:

 - Within current's held lock stack, check for lock recursion deadlock.
 - Within dependency graph, check for lock inversion deadlock.

Rename the two relevant functions for later use. Plus, with read locks,
dependency circle in graph is not a sufficient condition for lock
inversion deadlocks anymore, so check_noncircular() is not entirely
accurate.

No functional change.
