[PATCH 4.18 011/197] act_ife: move tcfa_lock down to where necessary




4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Cong Wang <xiyou.wangcong@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 4e407ff5cd67ec76eeeea1deec227b7982dc7f66 ]

The only time we need to take tcfa_lock is when adding
a new metainfo to an existing ife->metalist. We don't need
to take tcfa_lock so early and so broadly in tcf_ife_init().

This means we can always take ife_mod_lock first, avoid the
reverse locking ordering warning as reported by Vlad.
