Here, and above I see you using an rcu_head to defer cleanup, until after all
pointer uses are dropped, but I don't see any modification of code points that
dereference any struct netpoll pointers to include
rcu_read_lock()/rcu_read_unlock(). Without those using rcu to defer cleanup is
pointless, as the rcu code won't know when its safe to run. You're no better
off that you would be just calling __netpoll_cleanup directly.
