[PATCH] lockdep: fix static keys in module-allocated percpu areas

lockdep got confused by certain locks in modules:

 INFO: trying to register non-static key.
 the code is fine but needs lockdep annotation.
 turning off the locking correctness validator.

Steven Rostedt found the bug: static_obj() check did not take
PERCPU_ENOUGH_ROOM into account, so in-module DEFINE_PER_CPU-area locks
were triggering this message.
