Subject: [PATCH net] net: sched: fix lockdep_set_class() typo error for sch->seqlock

According to comment in qdisc_alloc(), sch->seqlock's lockdep
class key should be set to qdisc_tx_busylock, due to possible
type error, sch->busylock's lockdep class key is set to
qdisc_tx_busylock, which is duplicated because sch->busylock's
lockdep class key is already set in qdisc_alloc().

So fix it by replacing sch->busylock with sch->seqlock.

Fixes: 96009c7d500e ("sched: replace __QDISC_STATE_RUNNING bit with a spin lock")
Signed-off-by: Yunsheng Lin <>
commit ab92d68fc22f ("net: core: add generic lockdep keys")
seems to fix the above error without mentioning that, and then
it is reverted by commit 1a33e10e4a95 ("net: partially revert
dynamic lockdep key changes"), but the blamed commit still be
96009c7d500e ("sched: replace __QDISC_STATE_RUNNING bit with
a spin lock").
