Oh well, of course I must first fix the bug in net-2.6, and wait David
pull the fix in net-next-2.6 before sending this rcu conversion.

Note: this patch should be sent to stable teams (2.6.34 and up)

[PATCH net-2.6] llc: fix a device refcount imbalance

commit abf9d537fea225 (llc: add support for SO_BINDTODEVICE) added one
refcount imbalance in llc_ui_bind(), because dev_getbyhwaddr() doesnt
take a reference on device, while dev_get_by_index() does.

Fix this using RCU locking. And since an RCU conversion will be done for
2.6.38 for dev_getbyhwaddr(), put the rcu_read_lock/unlock exactly at
their final place.
