Currently, tcf_block doesn't use any synchronization mechanisms to protect
critical sections that manage lifetime of its chains. block->chain_list and
multiple variables in tcf_chain that control its lifetime assume external
synchronization provided by global rtnl lock. Converting chain reference
counting to atomic reference counters is not possible because cls API uses
multiple counters and flags to control chain lifetime, so all of them must
be synchronized in chain get/put code.

Use single per-block lock to protect block data and manage lifetime of all
chains on the block. Always take block->lock when accessing chain_list.
Chain get and put modify chain lifetime-management data and parent block's
chain_list, so take the lock in these functions. Verify block->lock state
with assertions in functions that expect to be called with the lock taken
and are called from multiple places. Take block->lock when accessing
filter_chain_list.

In order to allow parallel update of rules on single block, move all calls
to classifiers outside of critical sections protected by new block->lock.
Rearrange chain get and put functions code to only access protected chain
data while holding block lock:
- Rearrange code to only access chain reference counter and chain action
  reference counter while holding block lock.
- Extract code that requires block->lock from tcf_chain_destroy() into
  standalone tcf_chain_destroy() function that is called by
  __tcf_chain_put() in same critical section that changes chain reference
  counters.

Changes from V3 to V4:
  - Extract code that manages chain 'explicitly_created' flag into
    standalone patch.
