Subject: [net-next v2] tipc: fix a deadlock when flushing scheduled work

In the commit fdeba99b1e58
("tipc: fix use-after-free in tipc_bcast_get_mode"), we're trying
to make sure the tipc_net_finalize_work work item finished if it
enqueued. But calling flush_scheduled_work() is not just affecting
above work item but either any scheduled work. This has turned out
to be overkill and caused to deadlock as syzbot reported:

======================================================
WARNING: possible circular locking dependency detected
5.9.0-rc2-next-20200828-syzkaller #0 Not tainted
------------------------------------------------------
kworker/u4:6/349 is trying to acquire lock:
ffff8880aa063d38 ((wq_completion)events){+.+.}-{0:0}, at: flush_workqueue+0xe1/0x13e0 kernel/workqueue.c:2777

but task is already holding lock:
ffffffff8a879430 (pernet_ops_rwsem){++++}-{3:3}, at: cleanup_net+0x9b/0xb10 net/core/net_namespace.c:565

[...]
 Possible unsafe locking scenario:

       CPU0                    CPU1
       ----                    ----
  lock(pernet_ops_rwsem);
                               lock(&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#13);
                               lock(pernet_ops_rwsem);
  lock((wq_completion)events);

 *** DEADLOCK ***
[...]

v1:
To fix the original issue, we replace above calling by introducing
a bit flag. When a namespace cleaned-up, bit flag is set to zero and:
- tipc_net_finalize functionial just does return immediately.
- tipc_net_finalize_work does not enqueue into the scheduled work queue.

v2:
Use cancel_work_sync() helper to make sure ONLY the
tipc_net_finalize_work() stopped before releasing bcbase object.
