Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/7] sctp: remove some macro locking wrappers

In sctp.h we can find some macro locking wrappers. As Neil point out that:

"Its because in the origional implementation of the sctp protocol, there was a
user space test harness which built the kernel module for userspace execution to
cary our some unit testing on the code.  It did so by redefining some of those
locking macros to user space friendly code.  IIRC we haven't use those unit
tests in years, and so should be removing them, not adding them to other

So I remove them.

Wang Weidong (7):
  sctp: remove macro sctp_spin_[un]lock_irqrestore
  sctp: remove macro sctp_local_bh_{disable|enable}
  sctp: remove macro sctp_spin_[un]lock
  sctp: remove macros sctp_write_[un]_lock
  sctp: remove macros sctp_read_[un]lock
  sctp: remove macros sctp_{lock|release}_sock
  sctp: remove macros sctp_bh_[un]lock_sock
