Subject: [PATCH net 1/6] hsr: avoid debugfs warning message when module is remove

When hsr module is being removed, debugfs_remove() is called to remove
both debugfs directory and file.

When module is being removed, module state is changed to
MODULE_STATE_GOING then exit() is called.
At this moment, module couldn't be held so try_module_get()
will be failed.

debugfs's open() callback tries to hold the module if .owner is existing.
If it fails, warning message is printed.

CPU0				CPU1
delete_module()
    try_stop_module()
    hsr_exit()			open() <-- WARNING
        debugfs_remove()

In order to avoid the warning message, this patch makes hsr module does
not set .owner. Unsetting .owner is safe because these are protected by
inode_lock().

Test commands:
    #SHELL1
    ip link add dummy0 type dummy
    ip link add dummy1 type dummy
    while :
    do
        ip link add hsr0 type hsr slave1 dummy0 slave2 dummy1
	modprobe -rv hsr
    done

    #SHELL2
    while :
    do
        cat /sys/kernel/debug/hsr0/node_table
    done

Splat looks like:
