Subject[PATCH] netfilter/nf_tables: silence a RCU-list warning
Date
It is safe to traverse &net->nft.tables with &net->nft.commit_mutex
held using list_for_each_entry_rcu(). Silence the PROVE_RCU_LIST false
positive,

WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
net/netfilter/nf_tables_api.c:523 RCU-list traversed in non-reader section!!

other info that might help us debug this:

rcu_scheduler_active = 2, debug_locks = 1
1 lock held by iptables/1384:
#0: ffffffff9745c4a8 (&net->nft.commit_mutex){+.+.}, at: nf_tables_valid_genid+0x25/0x60 [nf_tables]
