Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 03/26] evm: Fix RCU list related warnings
Date
From: Madhuparna Bhowmik <madhuparnabhowmik10@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 770f60586d2af0590be263f55fd079226313922c ]

This patch fixes the following warning and few other instances of
traversal of evm_config_xattrnames list:

[ 32.848432] =============================
[ 32.848707] WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
[ 32.848966] 5.7.0-rc1-00006-ga8d5875ce5f0b #1 Not tainted
[ 32.849308] -----------------------------
[ 32.849567] security/integrity/evm/evm_main.c:231 RCU-list traversed in non-reader section!!

Since entries are only added to the list and never deleted, use
list_for_each_entry_lockless() instead of list_for_each_entry_rcu for
traversing the list. Also, add a relevant comment in evm_secfs.c to
indicate this fact.
