If tun driver have multiqueues, user close the last queue by
tun_detach, then tun->tfiles[index] is not cleared. Then a new
queue may add to the tun, which using rcu_assign_pointer
tun->tfiles[index] to the new tfile and increase the numqueues.
However if there send a packet during this time, which picking the last
queue, it may uses the old tun->tfiles[index], beacause there no
RCU grace period.

1) tun_chr_close //close the last queue
    --> __tun_detach  //close the last queue, but tun->tfiles[index] still exist

2) tun_chr_open  //attach a new queue
    --> tun_attach
      -->rcu_assign_pointer(tun->tfiles[tun->numqueues], tfile);
	  //there need a RCU grace period

3) tun_net_xmit //a new packet is sending, which pick the last queue
     -->if (txq >= tun->numqueues)
	   //above check passed, but tfile still not renew
     -->if (tfile->>sk_filter ...
	   //use the old tfile,trigger use-after-free
