bonding: use local function pointer of bond->recv_probe in bond_handle_frame
The bond->recv_probe is called in bond_handle_frame() when a packet is received, but bond_close() sets it to NULL. So, a panic occurs when both functions work in parallel. Why this happen: After null pointer check of bond->recv_probe, an sk_buff is duplicated and bond->recv_probe is called in bond_handle_frame. So, a panic occurs when bond_close() is called between the check and call of bond->recv_probe. Patch: This patch uses a local function pointer of bond->recv_probe in bond_handle_frame(). So, it can avoid the null pointer dereference.
