[PATCH 2/3] kernel, cred, kvm, security - removing superfluous rcu_read_lock_held check

hi,
the rcu_dereference_check is defined as

	#define rcu_dereference_check(p, c) \
	   __rcu_dereference_check((p), rcu_read_lock_held() || (c), __rcu)

so the caller does not need to specify rcu_read_lock_held() condition.

wbr,
jirka
