This patch fixes the warning:
 ===================================================
 [ INFO: suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage. ]
 ---------------------------------------------------
 net/ipv4/fib_trie.c:1756 invoked rcu_dereference_check() without protection!
 
 other info that might help us debug this:
 
 
 rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0
 1 lock held by pppd/1717:
  #0:  (rtnl_mutex){+.+.+.}, at: [<c125dc1f>] rtnl_lock+0xf/0x20
 
 stack backtrace:
 Pid: 1717, comm: pppd Not tainted 2.6.35.4a #3
 Call Trace:

  [<c12b74d4>] fib_table_flush+0x14/0x170
  ...

Allow trie_firstleaf() to be called either under rcu_read_lock()
protection or with RTNL held. The same annotation is added to
node_parent_rcu() to prevent a similar warning a bit later.

Followup of commits 634a4b20 and 4eaa0e3c.
