Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next v2] net/socket: use per af lockdep classes for
 sk queues

From: Paolo Abeni <>
Date: Thu,  9 Mar 2017 13:54:08 +0100

> Currently the sock queue's spin locks get their lockdep
> classes by the default init_spin_lock() initializer:
> all socket families get - usually, see below - a single
> class for rx, another specific class for tx, etc.
> This can lead to false positive lockdep splat, as

> Moreover there are two separate initialization points

> This change tries to address the above, setting explicitly

> spinlock. Also, move the duplicated initialization code to a
