Subject: [PATCH -rcu/kcsan 03/23] kcsan: Avoid checking scoped accesses from
 nested contexts

Avoid checking scoped accesses from nested contexts (such as nested
interrupts or in scheduler code) which share the same kcsan_ctx.

This is to avoid detecting false positive races of accesses in the same
thread with currently scoped accesses: consider setting up a watchpoint
for a non-scoped (normal) access that also "conflicts" with a current
scoped access. In a nested interrupt (or in the scheduler), which shares
the same kcsan_ctx, we cannot check scoped accesses set up in the parent
context -- simply ignore them in this case.

With the introduction of kcsan_ctx::disable_scoped, we can also clean up
kcsan_check_scoped_accesses()'s recursion guard, and do not need to
modify the list's prev pointer.
