Problem description:

Thread 210933 holds the rtnl_mutex and tries to acquire the kernfs_rwsem,
but there are many readers which hold the kernfs_rwsem, so it has to sleep
for a long time to wait the readers release the lock. Thread 278176 and any
other threads which call bonding_show_bonds() also need to wait because
they try to accuire the rtnl_mutex.

bonding_show_bonds() uses rtnl_mutex to protect the bond_list traversal.
However, the addition and deletion of bond_list are only performed in
bond_init()/bond_uninit(), so we can intoduce a separate read-write lock
to synchronize bond list mutation.

What's the benefits of this change?

1) All threads which call bonding_show_bonds() only wait when the
registration or unregistration of bond device happens.

2) There are many other users of rtnl_mutex, so bonding_show_bonds()
won't compete with them.

In a word, this change reduces the lock contention of rtnl_mutex.
