Subject: [PATCH net-next] ipv6: Avoid rt6_probe() taking writer lock in the fast path

The patch checks neigh->nud_state before acquiring the writer lock.
Note that rt6_probe() is only used in CONFIG_IPV6_ROUTER_PREF.

I also take this chance to re-arrange the code.

40 udpflood processes and a /64 gateway route are used.
The gateway has NUD_PERMANENT.  Each of them is run for 30s.
At the end, the total number of finished sendto():

Before    After
55M	  95M
