Subject: [PATCH net-next] rcu: prevent RCU_LOCKDEP_WARN() from swallowing the condition

We run into a unused variable warning in bridge code when
variable is only used inside the condition of
rcu_dereference_protected().

 #define mlock_dereference(X, br) \
	rcu_dereference_protected(X, lockdep_is_held(&br->multicast_lock))

Since on builds with CONFIG_PROVE_RCU=n rcu_dereference_protected()
compiles to nothing the compiler doesn't see the variable use.

Prevent the warning by adding the condition as dead code.
We need to un-hide the declaration of lockdep_tasklist_lock_is_held()
and fix a bug the crept into a net/sched header.
