Sorry wrong patch... forgot save the code and 'stg refresh'...

[PATCH 07/10] decnet: Use rcu_barrier() on module unload.

From: Jesper Dangaard Brouer <hawk@comx.dk>

The decnet module unloading as been disabled with a '#if 0' statement,
because it have had issues.

We add a rcu_barrier() anyhow for correctness.

The maintainer (Chrissie Caulfield) will look into the unload issue
when time permits.
