parentrxrpc: Fix client call connect/disconnect race (diff)
vxlan: Fix GRO cells race condition between receive and link delete
If we receive a packet while deleting a VXLAN device, there's a chance vxlan_rcv() is called at the same time as vxlan_dellink(). This is fine, except that vxlan_dellink() should never ever touch stuff that's still in use, such as the GRO cells list. Otherwise, vxlan_rcv() crashes while queueing packets via gro_cells_receive(). Move the gro_cells_destroy() to vxlan_uninit(), which runs after the RCU grace period is elapsed and nothing needs the gro_cells anymore. This is now done in the same way as commit 8e816df87997 ("geneve: Use GRO cells infrastructure.") originally implemented for GENEVE.
