I think the problem is clear:

mld_send_report(...){
	read_lock_bh(&idev->lock);	
	add_grec(...)				
	read_unlock_bh(&idev->lock);
}
	--->add_grec(...){
		add_grhead(...)
	}
		--->add_grhead(...){
			mld_newpack(...)
		}
			--->mld_newpack(...){
				ipv6_get_lladdr(...)
			}
				--__ipv6_get_lladdr(..)		(after the patch, so it is protect by the idev->lock)
			compare
				--->ipv6_get_lladdr(...){	(before the patch)
					read_lock_bh(&idev->lock);
					...
					read_unlock_bh(&idev->lock);
				}

						
so i think it is clear to describe the reason.
