The problem seems to be that two out of three callers aren't taking the
rcu_read_lock() before calling the list_for_each_entry_rcu() function in
rpc_xprt_switch_has_addr(). I fix this by having
rpc_xprt_switch_has_addr() unconditionaly take the rcu_read_lock(),
which is okay to do recursively in the case that the lock has already
been taken by a caller.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2023-52623 to this issue.

Mitigation
==========

The Linux kernel CVE team recommends that you update to the latest
stable kernel version for this, and many other bugfixes.  Individual
changes are never tested alone, but rather are part of a larger kernel
release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
issue can be found at these commits:
