Subject[PATCH 5/6] net: __this_cpu_inc in route.c
The RT_CACHE_STAT_INC macro triggers the new preemption checks
for __this_cpu ops

I do not see any other synchronization that would allow the use
of a __this_cpu operation here however in commit
dbd2915ce87e811165da0717f8e159276ebb803e Andrew justifies
the use of raw_smp_processor_id() here because "we do not care"
about races.

So lets use raw_cpu ops here and hope for the best. The use of
__this_cpu op improves the situation already from what commit
dbd2915ce87e811165da0717f8e159276ebb803e did since the single instruction
emitted on x86 does not allow the race to occur anymore. However,
non x86 platforms could still experience a race here.
