Subject: [PATCH 5.4 55/71] netfilter: ctnetlink: suspicious RCU usage in ctnetlink_dump_helpinfo

From: Vasily Averin <vvs@...tuozzo.com>

commit c23a9fd209bc6f8c1fa6ee303fdf037d784a1627 upstream.

Two patches listed below removed ctnetlink_dump_helpinfo call from under
rcu_read_lock. Now its rcu_dereference generates following warning:
=============================
WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
5.13.0+ #5 Not tainted
-----------------------------
net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_netlink.c:221 suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage!

other info that might help us debug this:
rcu_scheduler_active = 2, debug_locks = 1
stack backtrace:
