Subject[PATCH 4.4 032/241] net: avoid weird emergency message
Date
From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

[ Upstream commit d7c04b05c9ca14c55309eb139430283a45c4c25f ]

When host is under high stress, it is very possible thread
running netdev_wait_allrefs() returns from msleep(250)
10 seconds late.

This leads to these messages in the syslog :

[...] unregister_netdevice: waiting for syz_tun to become free. Usage count = 0

If the device refcount is zero, the wait is over.
