Subject: [PATCH -next v2 6/6] md/md-multipath: remove rcu protection to access rdev from conf

From: Yu Kuai <yukuai3@...wei.com>

Because it's safe to accees rdev from conf:
 - If any spinlock is held, because synchronize_rcu() from
   md_kick_rdev_from_array() will prevent 'rdev' to be freed until
   spinlock is released;
 - If there is normal IO inflight, because mddev_suspend() will prevent
   rdev to be added or removed from array;

And these will cover all the scenarios in md-multipath.
