ipv6: add rcu grace period before freeing fib6_node
We currently keep rt->rt6i_node pointing to the fib6_node for the route. And some functions make use of this pointer to dereference the fib6_node from rt structure, e.g. rt6_check(). However, as there is neither refcount nor rcu taken when dereferencing rt->rt6i_node, it could potentially cause crashes as rt->rt6i_node could be set to NULL by other CPUs when doing a route deletion. This patch introduces an rcu grace period before freeing fib6_node and makes sure the functions that dereference it takes rcu_read_lock(). Note: there is no "Fixes" tag because this bug was there in a very early stage.
