Subject: [PATCH v1 net 05/16] sysctl: Add proc_dointvec_minmax_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_dointvec_minmax() to use READ_ONCE()/WRITE_ONCE()
internally to fix a data-race on the sysctl side.  For now,
proc_dointvec_minmax() 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_dointvec_minmax() to a
wrapper of proc_dointvec_minmax_lockless().  When we fix a data-race in the
other subsystem, we can explicitly set it as a handler.

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

Fixes: 1da177e4c3f4 ("Linux-2.6.12-rc2")
