Subject: [PATCH v1 net 04/16] sysctl: Add proc_douintvec_lockless().

A sysctl variable is accessed concurrently, and there is always a chance of
data-race.  So, all readers and writers need some basic protection to avoid
load/store-tearing.

This patch changes proc_douintvec() to use READ_ONCE()/WRITE_ONCE()
internally to fix a data-race on the sysctl side.  For now,
proc_douintvec() itself is tolerant to a data-race, but we still need to
add annotations on the other subsystem's side.

In case we miss such fixes, this patch converts proc_douintvec() to a
wrapper of proc_douintvec_lockless().  When we fix a data-race in the other
subsystem, we can explicitly set it as a handler.

Also, this patch removes proc_douintvec()'s document and adds
proc_douintvec_lockless()'s one so that no one will use proc_douintvec()
anymore.

Fixes: e7d316a02f68 ("sysctl: handle error writing UINT_MAX to u32 fields")
