[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH] ip6mr: Fix RCU list debugging warning

ip6mr_for_each_table() macro uses list_for_each_entry_rcu()
for traversing outside an RCU read side critical section
but under the protection of rtnl_mutex. Hence add the
corresponding lockdep expression to silence the following
false-positive warnings:

[    4.319479] =============================
[    4.319480] WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
