Subject: [PATCH v4] net: neighbor: fix a crash caused by mod zero

pneigh_enqueue() tries to obtain a random delay by mod
NEIGH_VAR(p, PROXY_DELAY). However, NEIGH_VAR(p, PROXY_DELAY)
migth be zero at that point because someone could write zero
to /proc/sys/net/ipv4/neigh/[device]/proxy_delay after the
callers check it.

This patch uses prandom_u32_max() to get a random delay instead
which avoids potential division by zero.

V4:
    - Use prandom_u32_max() to get a random delay in
      pneigh_enqueue().
V3:
    - Callers need to pass the delay time to pneigh_enqueue()
      now and they should guarantee it is not zero.
    - Use READ_ONCE() to read NEIGH_VAR(p, PROXY_DELAY) in both
      of the existing callers of pneigh_enqueue() and then pass
      it to pneigh_enqueue().
V2:
    - Use READ_ONCE() to prevent the complier from re-reading
      NEIGH_VAR(p, PROXY_DELAY).
    - Give a hint to the complier that delay <= 0 is unlikely
      to happen.

V4 is quite concise and works well.
Thanks for Eric's and Jakub's advice.
