Subject: [patch net-next v3 06/15] net: devlink: don't take devlink_mutex for devlink_compat_*

From: Jiri Pirko <jiri@...lanox.com>

The netdevice is guaranteed to not disappear so we can rely that
devlink_port and devlink won't disappear as well. No need to take
devlink_mutex so don't take it here.
