[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH] ipmi: Fix RCU list lockdep debugging warnings

It is completely safe to traverse ipmi_interfaces and
intf->users under SRCU read lock using list_for_each_entry_rcu().
Tell lockdep about it as well else it will show false-positive
warnings as the one below.

Fixes the following false-positive warning and others that may follow.

[   29.772408] =============================
[   29.776863] WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
[   29.780915] 5.6.0-rc3-00001-g907305ae6618-dirty #1755 Not tainted
[   29.787046] -----------------------------
[   29.791100] drivers/char/ipmi/ipmi_msghandler.c:744 RCU-list traversed in
non-reader section!!
