Subject: [PATCH net] net: rfs: fix crash in get_rps_cpus()

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@...gle.com>

Commit 567e4b79731c ("net: rfs: add hash collision detection") had one
mistake :

RPS_NO_CPU is no longer the marker for invalid cpu in set_rps_cpu()
and get_rps_cpu(), as @next_cpu was the result of an AND with
rps_cpu_mask

This bug showed up on a host with 72 cpus :
next_cpu was 0x7f, and the code was trying to access percpu data of an
non existent cpu.

In a follow up patch, we might get rid of compares against nr_cpu_ids,
if we init the tables with 0. This is silly to test for a very unlikely
condition that exists only shortly after table initialization, as
we got rid of rps_reset_sock_flow() and similar functions that were
writing this RPS_NO_CPU magic value at flow dismantle : When table is
old enough, it never contains this value anymore.

Fixes: 567e4b79731c ("net: rfs: add hash collision detection")

I chose an obvious patch for stable kernel (4.0 +), but I'll submit a
nicer patch when net-next reopens, as we can simply remove RPS_NO_CPU
and these tests against nr_cpu_ids as I explained in this changelog.

Note to Ben: It seems set_rps_cpu() lacks RCU protection reading 
dev->rx_cpu_rmap. Its value can change under us and we might crash.
