Subject[PATCH 3.2 161/199] net: bridge: fix old ioctl unlocked net device walk
3.2.87-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Nikolay Aleksandrov <nikolay@cumulusnetworks.com>

[ Upstream commit 31ca0458a61a502adb7ed192bf9716c6d05791a5 ]

get_bridge_ifindices() is used from the old "deviceless" bridge ioctl
calls which aren't called with rtnl held. The comment above says that it is
called with rtnl but that is not really the case.
Here's a sample output from a test ASSERT_RTNL() which I put in
get_bridge_ifindices and executed "brctl show":
[ 957.422726] RTNL: assertion failed at net/bridge//br_ioctl.c (30)

Since it only reads bridge ifindices, we can use rcu to safely walk the net
device list. Also remove the wrong rtnl comment above.
