From: Maxim Mikityanskiy <maximmi@mellanox.com>

rq->xdp_prog is RCU-protected and should be accessed only with
rcu_access_pointer for the NULL check in mlx5e_poll_rx_cq.

rq->xdp_prog may change on the fly only from one non-NULL value to
another non-NULL value, so the checks in mlx5e_xdp_handle and
mlx5e_poll_rx_cq will have the same result during one NAPI cycle,
meaning that no additional synchronization is needed.

Fixes: fe45386a2082 ("net/mlx5e: Use RCU to protect rq->xdp_prog")
