Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/1] driver/net: add missing rtnl lock/unlock for benet

Because netif_running() is called in netif_device_detach and 
netif_device_attach. To avoid dev status changed while 
netif_device_detach/attach is not finished, I think a rtnl_lock and 
unlock should be called to avoid this.

Thanks
Zhenhua
