Thanks for the patch.

There is a typo in the subject line. It should say xen-netback, not
xen-netbank.

There are probably too many tabs here. Indentation looks wrong.

The surrounding code makes it pretty clear that the lock is already held
by the time list_for_each_entry_rcu is called, yet the checking involved
in lockdep_is_held is not trivial, so I'm afraid I don't consider this a
strict improvement over the existing code.

If there is something I misunderstood, let me know.

Wei.
