Subject: [PATCH net] ipv6: fix a lockdep splat

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@...gle.com>

Silence lockdep false positive about rcu_dereference() being
used in the wrong context.

First one should use rcu_dereference_protected() as we own the spinlock.

Second one should be a normal assignation, as no barrier is needed.

Fixes: 18367681a10bd ("ipv6 flowlabel: Convert np->ipv6_fl_list to RCU.")
