Pravin B Shelar - April 23, 2013, 5:48 p.m.
All genl callbacks are serialized by genl-mutex. This can become
bottleneck in multi threaded case.
Following patch adds an parameter to genl_family so that a
particular family can get concurrent netlink callback without
genl_lock held.
New rw-sem is used to protect genl callback from genl family unregister.
in case of parallel_ops genl-family read-lock is taken for callbacks and
write lock is taken for register or unregistration for any family.
In case of locked genl family semaphore and gel-mutex is locked for
any openration.

v2-v3:
 - rename lockless flag to parallel_ops
 - simplified genl-dump locking.
v1-v2:
 - No change.
