The thing is, I'm not entirely convinced you can deadlock on a local lock.

A local lock is per-cpu, so one CPU holding that lock won't actually
block another CPU holding it. Even on RT, I think.

I *think* local locks are useful for lockdep not because of any lock
chains they introduce, but because of how lockdep catches irq mis-use
(where they *can* deadlock).

But I may be entirely wrong, and maybe that lock chain through the
local lock actually does matter.

Let's bring in people who actually know what they are doing, rather
than my wild speculation. Thomas?
