From: Cong Wang <amwang@redhat.com>

This fixes sparse warnings like the one below:

drivers/net/team/team.c:953:25: warning: incorrect type in return expression (different address spaces)
drivers/net/team/team.c:953:25:    expected struct netpoll_info *
drivers/net/team/team.c:953:25:    got struct netpoll_info [noderef] <asn:4>*npinfo

This is a very confusing patch submission.

You're posting a "v2" of a patch but with a completely different Subject
line so that it's hard, without looking into the details of the patch,
to determine what this patch is a "v2" of.

You've also not addressed Stephen's feedback about the lack of an
rcu_dereference() in these routines you've added __rcu annotations
to.

I'm tossing all versions of this patch, therefore.

The reason is we don't dereference ->npinfo pointer, we just check if it
is NULL, so doesn't need to call rcu_dereference(). Or am I missing
anything?

Thanks.
