fib: use atomic_inc_not_zero() in fib_rules_lookup

It seems we dont use appropriate refcount increment in an
rcu_read_lock() protected section.

fib_rule_get() might increment a null refcount and bad things could

While fib_nl_delrule() respects an rcu grace period before calling
fib_rule_put(), fib_rules_cleanup_ops() calls fib_rule_put() without a
grace period.

Note : after this patch, we might avoid the synchronize_rcu() call done
in fib_nl_delrule()
