Subject: [PATCH bpf-next] bpf: Use hlist_add_head_rcu when linking to local_storage

The local_storage->list will be traversed by rcu reader in parallel.
Thus, hlist_add_head_rcu() is needed in bpf_selem_link_storage_nolock().
This patch fixes it.

This part of the code has recently been refactored in bpf-next
and this patch makes changes to the new file "bpf_local_storage.c".
Instead of using the original offending commit in the Fixes tag,
the commit that created the file "bpf_local_storage.c" is used.

A separate fix has been provided to the bpf tree.

Fixes: 450af8d0f6be ("bpf: Split bpf_local_storage to bpf_sk_storage")
