As mentioned above, RCU_LOCKDEP_WARN macro is called from
__list_check_rcu with 2 parameters

1. !cond && !rcu_read_lock_any_held()
2. The message to display incase there is a lockdep warning.


However, if I pass the lockdep checking condition as:

list_for_each_entry_rcu(ptr, list, head, lockdep_is_held(&some_lock) || rcu_read_lock_held())

this trickles down to __list_check_rcu and then finally to
RCU_LOCKDEP_WARN as (here cond is `lockdep_is_held(&some_lock) || rcu_read_lock_held()`):

RCU_LOCKDEP_WARN(!lockdep_is_held(&some_lock) || rcu_read_lock_held() && !rcu_read_lock_any_held())

which according to operator precedence (I hopefully got them right)
would always evaluate to true if we are in an RCU read-side critical
section (without a lock), and hence, result in a false-positive lockdep
warning.

This could be easily solved by putting `cond` inside brackets as it is
correctly done in RCU_LOCKDEP_WARN macro but not in __list_check_rcu
macro. Is that so, or did I miss something?

Secondly, since there is already a condition that checks for RCU
read-side critical section, the extra `rcu_read_lock_held()` we supply
is sort of redundant and can be skipped right?

Thanks
Amol
