Subject: [PATCH 4.19 31/52] ipv6: route: enforce RCU protection in rt6_update_exception_stamp_rt()

4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Paolo Abeni <pabeni@...hat.com>

[ Upstream commit 193f3685d0546b0cea20c99894aadb70098e47bf ]

We must access rt6_info->from under RCU read lock: move the
dereference under such lock, with proper annotation.

v1 -> v2:
 - avoid using multiple, racy, fetch operations for rt->from

Fixes: a68886a69180 ("net/ipv6: Make from in rt6_info rcu protected")
