bitlocks don't have native lockdep support.
I would be fairly easy to add lockdep support to
rht_{lock,unlock,unlocked} if you think it is worthwhile.
It could only really help if a hash-function or cmp-function took a
lock, but it is not a great cost so we may as well just do it.
I'll try to have a patch in the next day or so.
