Subject[PATCH v2 1/3] nsfs: add evict callback into struct proc_ns_operations
The newly added evict callback shall be called by nsfs_evict(). Currently
only put() callback is called in nsfs_evict(), it is not able to release
all netns refcount, for example, a rpc client holds two netns refcounts,
these refcounts are supposed to be released when the rpc client is freed,
but the code to free rpc client is normally triggered by put() callback
only when netns refcount gets to 0, specifically:
refcount=0 -> cleanup_net() -> ops_exit_list -> free rpc client
But netns refcount will never get to 0 before rpc client gets freed, to
break the deadlock, the code to free rpc client can be put into the newly
added evict callback.
