ok.

Fixes: 6b3ba9146fe6 ("net: sched: allow qdiscs to handle locking")

Using synchronize_net() seems more appropriate here, thanks.

Without calling qdisc_reset(), it seems there will always be skb left in the old qdisc.
Is above acceptable?

How about below steps to avoid the concurrent op:
1. assign new qdisc to all queue' qdisc(which is noop_qdisc).
2. call synchronize_net().
3. calling qdisc_reset() with all queue' qdisc_sleeping.

And the synchronize_net() in dev_deactivate_many() can be reused to
ensure old qdisc is not touched any more when calling qdisc_reset().
