Subject: [PATCH net] bpf: devmap: fix use-after-free Read in __dev_map_entry_free

synchronize_rcu() is fine when the rcu callbacks only need
to free memory (kfree_rcu() or direct kfree() call rcu call backs)

__dev_map_entry_free() is a bit more complex, so we need to make
sure that call queued __dev_map_entry_free() callbacks have completed.
