list_for_each_rcu must die: networking
All uses of list_for_each_rcu() can be profitably replaced by the easier-to-use list_for_each_entry_rcu(). This patch makes this change for networking, in preparation for removing the list_for_each_rcu() API entirely. Acked-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net> Signed-off-by: Paul E.
