Subject: [RFC PATCH 15/15] net: sched: drop ingress qdisc lock

After the previous patches to make the filters RCU safe and
support per cpu counters we can drop the qdisc lock around
the ingress qdisc hook.

This is possible because the ingress qdisc is a very basic
qdisc and only updates stats and runs tc_classify. Its the
simplest qdiscs we have.

In order for the per-cpu counters to get invoked the
ingress qdisc must set the LLQDISC flag.
