ipv4: Restore old dst_free() behavior.
commit 404e0a8b (net: ipv4: fix RCU races on dst refcounts) tried to solve a race but added a problem at device/fib dismantle time : We really want to call dst_free() as soon as possible, even if sockets still have dst in their cache. dst_release() calls in free_fib_info_rcu() are not welcomed. Root of the problem was that now we also cache output routes (in nh_rth_output), we must use call_rcu() instead of call_rcu_bh() in rt_free(), because output route lookups are done in process context. Based on feedback and initial patch from David Miller (adding another call_rcu_bh() call in fib, but it appears it was not the right fix) I left the inet_sk_rx_dst_set() helper and added __rcu attributes to nh_rth_output and nh_rth_input to better document what is going on in this code.
