Subject[patch 59/60] BRIDGE: Properly dereference the br_should_route_hook

2.6.23-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Pavel Emelyanov <xemul@openvz.org>

[BRIDGE]: Properly dereference the br_should_route_hook

[ Upstream commit: 82de382ce8e1c7645984616728dc7aaa057821e4 ]

This hook is protected with the RCU, so simple

if (br_should_route_hook)
br_should_route_hook(...)

is not enough on some architectures.

Use the rcu_dereference/rcu_assign_pointer in this case.

Fixed Stephen's comment concerning using the typeof().
