[PATCH 3.18 10/19] net: fix suspicious rcu_dereference_check in net/sched/sch_fq_codel.c

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sun Dec 14 2014 - 15:42:57 EST

3.18-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "Valdis.Kletnieks@xxxxxx" <Valdis.Kletnieks@xxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 69204cf7eb9c5a72067ce6922d4699378251d053 ]

commit 46e5da40ae (net: qdisc: use rcu prefix and silence
sparse warnings) triggers a spurious warning:

net/sched/sch_fq_codel.c:97 suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage!

The code should be using the _bh variant of rcu_dereference.
