Subject: [PATCH net] net: pktgen: remove rcu locking in pktgen_change_name()

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

After Jesper commit back in linux-3.18, we trigger a lockdep
splat in proc_create_data() while allocating memory from
pktgen_change_name().

This patch converts t->if_lock to a mutex, since it is now only
used from control path, and adds proper locking to pktgen_change_name()

1) pktgen_thread_lock to protect the outer loop (iterating threads)
2) t->if_lock to protect the inner loop (iterating devices)

Note that before Jesper patch, pktgen_change_name() was lacking proper
protection, but lockdep was not able to detect the problem.

Fixes: 8788370a1d4b ("pktgen: RCU-ify "if_list" to remove lock in next_to_run()")
