Subject: [PATCH repost] ptr_ring: fix race conditions when resizing

Resizing currently drops consumer lock.  This can cause entries to be
reordered, which isn't good in itself.  More importantly, consumer can
detect a false ring empty condition and block forever.

Further, nesting of consumer within producer lock is problematic for
tun, since it produces entries in a BH, which causes a lock order
reversal:

       CPU0                    CPU1
       ----                    ----
  consume:
  lock(&(&r->consumer_lock)->rlock);
                               resize:
                               local_irq_disable();
                               lock(&(&r->producer_lock)->rlock);
                               lock(&(&r->consumer_lock)->rlock);
  <Interrupt>
  produce:
  lock(&(&r->producer_lock)->rlock);

To fix, nest producer lock within consumer lock during resize,
and keep consumer lock during the whole swap operation.

Dave, could you merge this before 4.10? If not - I can try.
