net: dont hold rtnl mutex during netlink dump callbacks
Four years ago, Patrick made a change to hold rtnl mutex during netlink dump callbacks. I believe it was a wrong move. This slows down concurrent dumps, making good old /proc/net/ files faster than rtnetlink in some situations. This occurred to me because one "ip link show dev ..." was _very_ slow on a workload adding/removing network devices in background. All dump callbacks are able to use RCU locking now, so this patch does roughly a revert of commits : 1c2d670f366 : [RTNETLINK]: Hold rtnl_mutex during netlink dump callbacks 6313c1e0992 : [RTNETLINK]: Remove unnecessary locking in dump callbacks This let writers fight for rtnl mutex and readers going full speed. It also takes care of phonet : phonet_route_get() is now called from rcu read section. I renamed it to phonet_route_get_rcu() Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Cc: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net> Cc: Remi Denis-Courmont <remi.denis-courmont@nokia.com> Acked-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@vyatta.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
