+Paul since RCU.

Hi Masami,

I believe I had commented before that I don't agree with this patch:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/157535318870.16485.6366477974356032624.stgit@devnote2/

The rationale you used is to replace RCU-api with non-RCU api just to avoid
warnings. I think a better approach is to use RCU api and pass the optional
expression to silence the false-positive warnings by informing the RCU API
about the fact that locks are held (similar to what we do for
rcu_dereference_protected()). The RCU API will do additional checking
(such as making sure preemption is disabled for safe RCU usage etc) as well.

Could you repost the latest versions?

thanks,

- Joel
