IB/core: Eliminate sparse false context imbalance warning

When write_gid function needs to do a sleep-able operation, it unlocks
table->rwlock and then relocks it. Sparse complains about context

This is safe as write_gid is always called with table->rwlock.
write_gid protects from simultaneous writes to this GID entry
by setting the GID_TABLE_ENTRY_INVALID flag.

Fixes: 9c584f04
