Subject[PATCH 3.8 53/81] ipv4 igmp: use in_dev_put in timer handlers instead of __in_dev_put
Date
3.8.13.12 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Salam Noureddine <noureddine@aristanetworks.com>

[ Upstream commit e2401654dd0f5f3fb7a8d80dad9554d73d7ca394 ]

It is possible for the timer handlers to run after the call to
ip_mc_down so use in_dev_put instead of __in_dev_put in the handler
function in order to do proper cleanup when the refcnt reaches 0.
Otherwise, the refcnt can reach zero without the in_device being
destroyed and we end up leaking a reference to the net_device and
see messages like the following,

unregister_netdevice: waiting for eth0 to become free. Usage count = 1

Tested on linux-3.4.43.
