Subject: [PATCH (resend)][NEIGH]: Fix race between pneigh deletion and ipv6's
 ndisc_recv_ns.

Sorry for the noise, David, but that's the final version of the fix.
Fixed comments from YOSHIFUJI - indentation of prototype in header
and the pndisc_check_router() name - and a compilation fix, pointed
by Daniel - the is_routed was (falsely) considered as uninitialized
by gcc.



Proxy neighbors do not have any reference counting, so any caller
of pneigh_lookup (unless it's a netlink triggered add/del routine)
should _not_ perform any actions on the found proxy entry. 

There's one exception from this rule - the ipv6's ndisc_recv_ns() 
uses found entry to check the flags for NTF_ROUTER.

This creates a race between the ndisc and pneigh_delete - after 
the pneigh is returned to the caller, the nd_tbl.lock is dropped 
and the deleting procedure may proceed.

One of the fixes would be to add a reference counting, but this
problem exists for ndisc only. Besides such a patch would be too 
big for -rc4.

So I propose to introduce a __pneigh_lookup() which is supposed
to be called with the lock held and use it in ndisc code to check
the flags on alive pneigh entry.
