Subject: [PATCH 1/4] net: mac80211: util.c: Fix RCU list usage warnings

From: Madhuparna Bhowmik <madhuparnabhowmik10@...il.com>

This patch fixes the following warning (CONIG_PROVE_RCU_LIST)
in ieee80211_check_combinations().

WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
[   80.933723] 5.6.0+ #4 Not tainted
[   80.933733] -----------------------------
[   80.933746] net/mac80211/util.c:3934 RCU-list traversed in non-reader section!!

Also, fix the other uses of list_for_each_entry_rcu() by either using
list_for_each_entry() instead (When mutex or spinlock is always held
in the function) or pass the necessary lockdep condition.
