Subject[RFC 1/5] net: rtnetlink: Fix incorrect RCU API usage
Date
From: Joel Fernandes <joel@joelfernandes.org>

rtnl_register_internal() and rtnl_unregister_all tries to directly
dereference an RCU protected pointed outside RCU read side section.
While this is Ok to do since a lock is held, let us use the correct
API to avoid programmer bugs in the future.

This also fixes sparse warnings arising from not using RCU API.

net/core/rtnetlink.c:332:13: warning: incorrect type in assignment
(different address spaces) net/core/rtnetlink.c:332:13: expected
struct rtnl_link **tab net/core/rtnetlink.c:332:13: got struct
rtnl_link *[noderef] <asn:4>*<noident>
