this is a deadlock on RT however !RT has a hidden problem which not
yelled at by lockdep. We have the following call path:

| hci_send_monitor_ctrl_event()
| read_lock(&hci_sk_list.lock);
| hci_send_to_channel()
| read_lock(&hci_sk_list.lock);

So both functions acquire the same read_lock. If a write comes along
between the first read_lock() and second read_lock() then we have a
deadlock because the write_lock() will lock down further readers from
acquiring the read-lock until the writer completed its task.

This recursive locking was introduced in 38ceaa00d02d ("Bluetooth: Add
support for sending MGMT commands and events to monitor").
