From: Madhuparna Bhowmik <madhuparnabhowmik10 at gmail.com>

local->sta_mtx is held in __ieee80211_check_fast_rx_iface().
No need to use list_for_each_entry_rcu() as it also requires
a cond argument to avoid false lockdep warnings when not used in
RCU read-side section (with CONFIG_PROVE_RCU_LIST).
Therefore use list_for_each_entry();
