    ms/ipv6: fix a lockdep splat
    Silence lockdep false positive about rcu_dereference() being
    used in the wrong context.
    First one should use rcu_dereference_protected() as we own the spinlock.
    Second one should be a normal assignation, as no barrier is needed.
    Fixes: 18367681a10bd ("ipv6 flowlabel: Convert np->ipv6_fl_list to RCU.")
