Subject[PATCH 5.1 019/138] mac80211: mesh: fix RCU warning
Date
[ Upstream commit 551842446ed695641a00782cd118cbb064a416a1 ]

ifmsh->csa is an RCU-protected pointer. The writer context
in ieee80211_mesh_finish_csa() is already mutually
exclusive with wdev->sdata.mtx, but the RCU checker did
not know this. Use rcu_dereference_protected() to avoid a
warning.

fixes the following warning:
