    device_cgroup: Fix RCU list debugging warning
    
    exceptions may be traversed using list_for_each_entry_rcu()
    outside of an RCU read side critical section BUT under the
    protection of decgroup_mutex. Hence add the corresponding
    lockdep expression to fix the following false-positive
    warning:
    
    [    2.304417] =============================
    [    2.304418] WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
    [    2.304420] 5.5.4-stable #17 Tainted: G            E
    [    2.304422] -----------------------------
    [    2.304424] security/device_cgroup.c:355 RCU-list traversed in non-reader section!!
