Amerigo Wang - Dec. 1, 2010, 11:14 a.m.
From: WANG Cong <amwang@redhat.com>

The latest net-next-2.6 triggers an RCU warning during boot,
lockdep complains that in inet_fill_link_af() we call rcu_dereference_check()
without rcu_read_lock() protection.

This patch fixes it by replacing __in_dev_get_rcu() with in_dev_get().

Sorry patch is not the right fix. Please take a look at commit 95ae6b22

We are working hard to remove all the not needed get()/put(), not to add
new ones ;)

In this function why should we even take a reference, just to check if
pointer exists ?

If RTNL is held (I believe so), just use __in_dev_get_rtnl()

In this function we hold RTNL...
 Please use __in_dev_get_rtnl()

Same here. RTNL is held. Please use __in_dev_get_rtnl()
