This will work for my case as current-> is no longer referenced by the
lockdep macros. Please continue below though.

Given that lockdep_off() is defined at lockdep.c as:

  void lockdep_off(void)
  {
        current->lockdep_recursion += LOCKDEP_OFF;
  }

This would imply that all of the macros:

  - lockdep_assert_irqs_enabled()
  - lockdep_assert_irqs_disabled()
  - lockdep_assert_in_irq()
  - lockdep_assert_preemption_disabled()
  - lockdep_assert_preemption_enabled()

will do the lockdep checks *even if* lockdep_off() was called.

This doesn't sound right. Even if all of the above macros call sites
didn't care about lockdep_off()/on(), it is semantically incoherent.
