Well, there is nothing fundamentally changed w.r.t. the race I have fixed.

In tcindex_delete(), after all Vlad's patches, it still calls tcf_queue_work()
therefore still races with call_rcu(). This has nothing to do with whether
it is RTNL or another mutex.

For the first memory leak, it is same, nothing changes, tcindex_delete()
still skips r->res.class==0 therefore we still need to fix it.

For the rest two memory leaks, it looks like you already merged the fix
(patch 3/3) correctly.

I will cherry-pick the first two patches for net-next and send them to you.
