In rte_hash_iterate, the reader lock did not protect the
while loop which checks empty entry. This created a race
condition that the entry may become empty when enters
the lock, then a wrong key data value would be read out.

This commit reads out the position in the while condition,
which makes sure that the position will not be changed
to empty before entering the lock.

Fixes: f2e3001b53ec ("hash: support read/write concurrency")
