The following sequence of patches replaces the remaining use of brlock
with RCU. Most of this is fairly straightforward. The unregister functions
use synchronize_kernel(), perhaps there should be a special version to
indicate sychronizing with network BH.

Tested the normal network path and IPV4.
For the others all the pieces compile. But don't have the test setup to
give VLAN, SNAP, IPV6, and all the netfilter code a real test.
