Hi Sasha,

Sorry for the delay. I was actually looking into if I could tickle
lockdep into just recording the lock contention without testing, but
unfortunately, changes to where lockdep stores the contention now
requires the lockdep state to have an existing owner.

So here's the trivial patch:

Subject: [PATCH] tty: Drop lock contention stat from ldsem trylocks

When lockdep is notified of lock contention, lockdep expects its
internal state to indicate the lock is held. Since trylocks cannot
reflect this state unless the lock is actually acquired, contention
stats cannot be collected for trylocks.

Fixes:
