Subject: [patch net-next v2 04/19] net: switchdev: Change notifier chain to be atomic

From: Arkadi Sharshevsky <arkadis@...lanox.com>

In order to use the switchdev notifier chain for FDB sync with the
device it has to be changed to atomic. The is done because the bridge
can learn new FDBs in atomic context.
