Yeah, that one needs to go.

Subject: membarrier: Fix faulty merge

Commit 227a4aadc75b ("sched/membarrier: Fix p->mm->membarrier_state racy
load") got fat fingered by me when merging it with other patches. It
meant to move the rcu section out of the for loop but ended up doing it
partially, leaving a superfluous rcu_read_lock() inside, causing havok.

Fixes: 227a4aadc75b ("sched/membarrier: Fix p->mm->membarrier_state racy load")
