lockdep: continue lock debugging despite some taints
Impact: broaden lockdep checks Lockdep is disabled after any kernel taints. This might be convenient to ignore bad locking issues which sources come from outside the kernel tree. Nevertheless, it might be a frustrating experience for the staging developers or those who experience a warning but are focused on another things that require lockdep. The v2 of this patch simply don't disable anymore lockdep in case of TAINT_CRAP and TAINT_WARN events.
