I don't see anything pointing to reverse iteration being the problem,
or even the call graph order.

What I see is phonet registering a netdevice notifier.
Then I see phonet register pernet_device operations.
Then I see phonet responding to all network devices no matter what
the network namespace is, and looking in the phonet net_generic data
for them.

Looking phonet does not implement any network devices phonet just has
per network device state. Which means phonet should be using
register_pernet_subsys and this roughly is the same issue we saw with
caif. Confusion of when you should use register_pernet_subsys and
register_pernet_device.

Issues that I see.
- There is a bunch of weird and stuff going on in phonet_net_exit
to handle the module unregister case where we don't synthesize
network device removal events. ( A generic bug we can fix).

- phonet should be using register_pernet_subsys instead of
register_pernet_device.

Patches to follow in a minute. Is there any chance you can reproduce
this so you can verify the problems don't continue to reproduce?

Eric
