Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 139/330] bpf: Remove recursion prevention from rcu free callback

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@...utronix.de>

[ Upstream commit 8a37963c7ac9ecb7f86f8ebda020e3f8d6d7b8a0 ]

If an element is freed via RCU then recursion into BPF instrumentation
functions is not a concern. The element is already detached from the map
and the RCU callback does not hold any locks on which a kprobe, perf event
or tracepoint attached BPF program could deadlock.
