From: Madhuparna Bhowmik <madhuparnabhowmik10 at gmail.com>

This patch fixes the following warning:

WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
[   84.530619] 5.6.0+ #4 Not tainted
[   84.530637] -----------------------------
[   84.530658] net/mac80211/scan.c:454 RCU-list traversed in non-reader section!!

As local->mtx is held in __ieee80211_scan_completed(), no need to use
list_for_each_entry_rcu() (use list_for_each_entry() instead.).
