Subject[PATCH] net/packet: fix race condition between fanout_add and __unregister_prot_hook
If fanout_add is preempted after running po-> fanout = match
and before running __fanout_link,
it will cause BUG_ON when __unregister_prot_hook call __fanout_unlink

so, we need add mutex_lock(&fanout_mutex) to __unregister_prot_hook
or add spin_lock(&po->bind_lock) before po-> fanout = match

test on linux 4.1.42:
./trinity -c setsockopt -C 2 -X &

BUG: failure at net/packet/af_packet.c:1414/__fanout_unlink()!
Kernel panic - not syncing: BUG!
