Then in this case, use either a condition ORing all possibilities,
or just use rcu_dereference_raw() because its just too complex ?

ptr = rcu_dereference_check(xxx->ptr,
rcu_read_lock_held() ||
lockdep_is_held(&some_global_lock) ||


/* This is too complex to check what protects us at this point */
ptr = rcu_dereference_raw(xxx->ptr);
