[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH v3] drivers: nvme: target: core: Pass lockdep expression to RCU lists

ctrl->subsys->namespaces and subsys->namespaces are traversed with
list_for_each_entry_rcu outside an RCU read-side critical section
but under the protection of ctrl->subsys->lock and subsys->lock

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

- Fix error reported by kbuild test robot

- Fix sparse error
  CHECK: Alignment should match open parenthesis
- Remove global macro and use local lockdep expressions
