Subject: [PATCH net-next] net: sch_generic: aviod concurrent reset and enqueue op for lockless qdisc

Currently there is concurrent reset and enqueue operation for the
same lockless qdisc when there is no lock to synchronize the
q->enqueue() in __dev_xmit_skb() with the qdisc reset operation in
qdisc_deactivate() called by dev_deactivate_queue(), which may cause
out-of-bounds access for priv->ring[] in hns3 driver if user has
requested a smaller queue num when __dev_xmit_skb() still enqueue a
skb with a larger queue_mapping after the corresponding qdisc is
reset, and call hns3_nic_net_xmit() with that skb later.

Avoid the above concurrent op by calling synchronize_rcu_tasks()
after assigning new qdisc to dev_queue->qdisc and before calling
qdisc_deactivate() to make sure skb with larger queue_mapping
enqueued to old qdisc will always be reset when qdisc_deactivate()
is called.
