Subject: [PATCH tip/core/rcu 21/30] rculist: Add brackets around cond argument in __list_check_rcu macro

From: Amol Grover <frextrite@...il.com>

Passing a complex lockdep condition to __list_check_rcu results
in false positive lockdep splat due to incorrect expression
evaluation.

For example, a lockdep check condition `cond1 || cond2` is
evaluated as `!cond1 || cond2 && !rcu_read_lock_any_held()`
which, according to operator precedence, evaluates to
`!cond1 || (cond2 && !rcu_read_lock_any_held())`.
This would result in a lockdep splat when cond1 is false
and cond2 is true which is logically incorrect.
