Johan Hovold reported a big lockdep slowdown on his system, caused by lockdep:

> I had noticed that the BeagleBone Black boot time appeared to have
> increased significantly with 4.14 and yesterday I finally had time to
> investigate it.
> Boot time (from "Linux version" to login prompt) had in fact doubled
> since 4.13 where it took 17 seconds (with my current config) compared to
> the 35 seconds I now see with 4.14-rc4.
> I quick bisect pointed to lockdep and specifically the following commit:
> 28a903f63ec0 ("locking/lockdep: Handle non(or multi)-acquisition of a crosslock")

Because the final v4.14 release is close, disable the cross-release lockdep
features for now.
