parentrtnetlink: place link af dump into own helper (diff)
net: core: rcu-ify rtnl af_ops
rtnl af_ops currently rely on rtnl mutex: unregister (called from module exit functions) takes the rtnl mutex and all users that do af_ops lookup also take the rtnl mutex. IOW, parallel rmmod will block until doit() callback is done. As none of the af_ops implementation sleep we can use rcu instead. doit functions that need the af_ops can now use rcu instead of the rtnl mutex provided the mutex isn't needed for other reasons.
