[PATCH] lockdep: add local_irq_enable_in_hardirq() API

Introduce local_irq_enable_in_hardirq() API.  It is currently aliased to
local_irq_enable(), hence has no functional effects.

This API will be used by lockdep, but even without lockdep this will better
document places in the kernel where a hardirq context enables hardirqs.

* On lockdep we dont want to enable hardirqs in hardirq
* context. Use local_irq_enable_in_hardirq() to annotate
* kernel code that has to do this nevertheless (pretty much
* the only valid case is for old/broken hardware that is
* insanely slow).
* NOTE: in theory this might break fragile code that relies
* on hardirq delivery - in practice we dont seem to have such
* places left. So the only effect should be slightly increased
* irqs-off latencies.
