Subject[073/152] x25: decrement netdev reference counts on unload
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------


From: Apollon Oikonomopoulos <apollon@noc.grnet.gr>

[ Upstream commit 33ce2b3d81dca76f589641b7a675c28f0f6375b1 ]

x25 does not decrement the network device reference counts on module unload.
Thus unregistering any pre-existing interface after unloading the x25 module
hangs and results in

unregister_netdevice: waiting for tap0 to become free. Usage count = 1

This patch decrements the reference counts of all interfaces in x25_link_free,
the way it is already done in x25_link_device_down for NETDEV_DOWN events.
