Subject: [PATCH v1 net 16/16] ipv4: Fix a data-race around sysctl_fib_sync_mem.

While reading sysctl_fib_sync_mem, it can be changed concurrently.  So, we
need to add READ_ONCE().  Then we can set proc_douintvec_minmax_lockless()
as the handler to mark it safe.

Fixes: 9ab948a91b2c ("ipv4: Allow amount of dirty memory from fib resizing to be controllable")
