Thanks for clarifying and the nicer patch.

Reusing the existing synchronize_net() is a good idea.

Some minor comment inline.

It seems semantics for some_qdisc_is_busy() is changed, which does not only do
the checking, but also do the reseting?

Also, qdisc_reset() could be called multi times for the same qdisc if some_qdisc_is_busy()
return true multi times?
