audit: Add __rcu annotation to RCU pointer
Add __rcu annotation to RCU-protected global pointer auditd_conn. auditd_conn is an RCU-protected global pointer,i.e., accessed via RCU methods rcu_dereference() and rcu_assign_pointer(), hence it must be annotated with __rcu for sparse to report warnings/errors correctly. Fix multiple instances of the sparse error: error: incompatible types in comparison expression (different address spaces) Reviewed-by: Joel Fernandes (Google) <joel@joelfernandes.org> Signed-off-by: Amol Grover <frextrite@gmail.com> [PM: tweak subject line] Signed-off-by: Paul Moore <paul@paul-moore.com>
