net: ipmr, ip6mr: fix vif/tunnel failure race condition
Since (at least) commit b17a7c179dd3 ("[NET]: Do sysfs registration as part of register_netdevice."), netdev_run_todo() deals only with unregistration, so we don't need to do the rtnl_unlock/lock cycle to finish registration when failing pimreg or dvmrp device creation. In fact that opens a race condition where someone can delete the device while rtnl is unlocked because it's fully registered. The problem gets worse when netlink support is introduced as there are more points of entry that can cause it and it also makes reusing that code correctly impossible.
