Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.8 01/20] device_cgroup: Fix RCU list debugging warning
Date
From: Amol Grover <frextrite@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit bc62d68e2a0a69fcdcf28aca8edb01abf306b698 ]

exceptions may be traversed using list_for_each_entry_rcu()
outside of an RCU read side critical section BUT under the
protection of decgroup_mutex. Hence add the corresponding
lockdep expression to fix the following false-positive
warning:

[ 2.304417] =============================
[ 2.304418] WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
[ 2.304420] 5.5.4-stable #17 Tainted: G E
[ 2.304422] -----------------------------
[ 2.304424] security/device_cgroup.c:355 RCU-list traversed in non-reader section!!
