Hmm, rhltable_insert_key I think returns a pointer to the existing object in the
hash table if there is a collision (according to the _rhashtable_insert_fast
description).  Wouldn't it be better to eliminate the rhl_for_each_entry_rcu
entirely, and just check the returned pointer from rhltable_insert_key?
