[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH] sunrpc: Pass lockdep expression to RCU lists

detail->hash_table[] is traversed using hlist_for_each_entry_rcu
outside an RCU read-side critical section but under the protection
of detail->hash_lock.

Hence, add corresponding lockdep expression to silence false-positive
warnings, and harden RCU lists.
