net: Automatically allocate per namespace data.
To get the full benefit of batched network namespace cleanup netowrk device deletion needs to be performed by the generic code. When using register_pernet_gen_device and freeing the data in exit_net it is impossible to delay allocation until after exit_net has called as the device uninit methods are no longer safe. To correct this, and to simplify working with per network namespace data I have moved allocation and deletion of per network namespace data into the network namespace core. The core now frees the data only after all of the network namespace exit routines have run. Now it is only required to set the new fields .id and .size in the pernet_operations structure if you want network namespace data to be managed for you automatically. This makes the current register_pernet_gen_device and register_pernet_gen_subsys routines unnecessary. For the moment I have left them as compatibility wrappers in net_namespace.h They will be removed once all of the users have been updated. Signed-off-by: Eric W.
