Subject[PATCH] nf_nat_h323.c unneeded rcu_dereference() calls
Hello!

While reviewing rcu_dereference() uses, I came across a number of cases
where I couldn't see how the rcu_dereference() helped. One class of
cases is where the variable is never subsequently dereferenced, so that
patches like the following one would be appropriate.

So, what am I missing here?
