[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH net 2/2 RESEND] ipmr: Add lockdep expression to ipmr_for_each_table macro

ipmr_for_each_table() uses list_for_each_entry_rcu() for
traversing outside of an RCU read-side critical section but
under the protection of pernet_ops_rwsem. Hence add the
corresponding lockdep expression to silence the following
false-positive warning at boot:

[    0.645292] =============================
[    0.645294] WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
[    0.645296] 5.5.4-stable #17 Not tainted
[    0.645297] -----------------------------
[    0.645299] net/ipv4/ipmr.c:136 RCU-list traversed in non-reader section!!
