Jay Vosburgh - Oct. 29, 2011, 1:42 a.m.
This patch resolves two sets of race conditions.

	Mitsuo Hayasaka <mitsuo.hayasaka.hu@hitachi.com> reported the
first, as follows:

The bond_close() calls cancel_delayed_work() to cancel delayed works.
It, however, cannot cancel works that were already queued in workqueue.
The bond_open() initializes work->data, and proccess_one_work() refers
get_work_cwq(work)->wq->flags. The get_work_cwq() returns NULL when
work->data has been initialized. Thus, a panic occurs.

	He included a patch that converted the cancel_delayed_work calls
in bond_close to flush_delayed_work_sync, which eliminated the above
problem.

	His patch is incorporated, at least in principle, into this
patch.  In this patch, we use cancel_delayed_work_sync in place of
flush_delayed_work_sync, and also convert bond_uninit in addition to
bond_close.

	This conversion to _sync, however, opens new races between
bond_close and three periodically executing workqueue functions:
bond_mii_monitor, bond_alb_monitor and bond_activebackup_arp_mon.

	The race occurs because bond_close and bond_uninit are always
called with RTNL held, and these workqueue functions may acquire RTNL to
perform failover-related activities.  If bond_close or bond_uninit is
waiting in cancel_delayed_work_sync, deadlock occurs.

	These deadlocks are resolved by having the workqueue functions
acquire RTNL conditionally.  If the rtnl_trylock() fails, the functions
reschedule and return immediately.  For the cases that are attempting to
perform link failover, a delay of 1 is used; for the other cases, the
normal interval is used (as those activities are not as time critical).

	Additionally, the bond_mii_monitor function now stores the delay
in a variable (mimicing the structure of activebackup_arp_mon).

	Lastly, all of the above renders the kill_timers sentinel moot,
and therefore it has been removed.

Applied, thanks a lot Jay.
