ifmsh->csa was being dereferenced without the RCU read
lock held.

fixes the following warning:

Sorry the commit message is a little out of date, I actually tested on
5.1.0-rc7-wt as well.

This seems wrong to me.

Really this code is the *writer* side, so you should do something like
this:

Can you test that and send a proper patch?

Thanks this looks correct. I should've thought about this a tiny bit more ;)
