Merge branch 'net-sched-race-fix'

Cong Wang says:

net_sched: close the race between call_rcu() and cleanup_net()

This patchset tries to fix the race between call_rcu() and
cleanup_net() again. Without holding the netns refcnt the
tc_action_net_exit() in netns workqueue could be called before
filter destroy works in tc filter workqueue. This patchset
moves the netns refcnt from tc actions to tcf_exts, without
breaking per-netns tc actions.

Patch 1 reverts the previous fix, patch 2 introduces two new
API's to help to address the bug and the rest patches switch
to the new API's. Please see each patch for details.

I was not able to reproduce this bug, but now after adding
some delay in filter destroy work I manage to trigger the
crash. After this patchset, the crash is not reproducible
any more and the debugging printk's show the order is expected
