genetlink: Add rcu_dereference_genl and genl_dereference.

This adds rcu_dereference_genl and genl_dereference, which are genl
variants of the RTNL functions to enforce proper locking with lockdep
and sparse.

* @p: The pointer to read, prior to dereferencing
* Do an rcu_dereference(p), but check caller either holds rcu_read_lock()

* @p: The pointer to read, prior to dereferencing
* Return the value of the specified RCU-protected pointer, but omit
* both the smp_read_barrier_depends() and the ACCESS_ONCE(), because
* caller holds genl mutex.
