The intent of the _rcu in the name is to mean it is called with 
rcu_read_lock held which is the case for __fib_validate_source and 
ip_route_input_slow. It looks like the icmp callers (icmp_reply and 
icmp_route_lookup) are the exceptions. For those create a

static inline int vrf_master_ifindex(const struct net_device *dev)
{

}

that does the rcu lock/unlock and calls vrf_master_ifindex_rcu in between.
