block: Substitute rcu_access_pointer() for rcu_dereference_raw()



(Trivial patch.)

If the code is looking at the RCU-protected pointer itself, but not
dereferencing it, the rcu_dereference() functions can be downgraded to
rcu_access_pointer().  This commit makes this downgrade in blkg_destroy()
and ioc_destroy_icq(), both of which simply compare the RCU-protected
pointer against another pointer with no dereferencing.
