Subject: [PATCH] net/mlx5: Fix potential sleeping in atomic context

Fixes the below flow of sleeping in atomic context by releasing
the RCU lock before calling to free_match_list.

build_match_list() <- disables preempt
-> free_match_list()
   -> tree_put_node()
      -> down_write_ref_node() <- take write lock

Fixes: 693c6883bbc4 ("net/mlx5: Add hash table for flow groups in flow table")
