This is only true if we set SOCK_RCU_FREE, isn't it?

The point is we don't convert tun->numqueues to RCU but use
synchronize_net().

The code is wrote before SOCK_RCU_FREE is introduced and assume no
de-reference from device after synchronize_net(). It doesn't harm to
figure out the root cause which may give us more confidence to the fix
(e.g like SOCK_RCU_FREE).

I don't object to fix with SOCK_RCU_FREE, but then we should remove
the redundant synchronize_net(). But I still prefer to synchronize
everything explicitly like (completely untested):
