net_sched: move the empty tp check from ->destroy() to ->delete()
We could have a race condition where in ->classify() path we dereference tp->root and meanwhile a parallel ->destroy() makes it a NULL. Daniel cured this bug in commit d936377414fa ("net, sched: respect rcu grace period on cls destruction"). This happens when ->destroy() is called for deleting a filter to check if we are the last one in tp, this tp is still linked and visible at that time. The root cause of this problem is the semantic of ->destroy(), it does two things (for non-force case): 1) check if tp is empty 2) if tp is empty we could really destroy it and its caller, if cares, needs to check its return value to see if it is really destroyed. Therefore we can't unlink tp unless we know it is empty. As suggested by Daniel, we could actually move the test logic to ->delete() so that we can safely unlink tp after ->delete() tells us the last one is just deleted and before ->destroy().
