Re: kernel panic in latest vanilla stable, while using nameif with "alive" pppoe interfaces

| There is still a race here, since you do a dev_put(po->ppoe_dev); without any lock held
| 
| So pppoe_flush_dev() can run concurently and dev_put(po->ppoe_dev) at same time.
| 
| In fact pppoe_flush_dev() can change po->ppoe_dev anytime, so you should check
| all occurences of po->ppoe_dev use in the code and check if appropriate locking is done.
| 
| pppoe_rcv_core() is not safe
| pppoe_ioctl() is not safe
| pppoe_sendmsg() is not safe
| __pppoe_xmit() is not safe
| 

Eric, Michal, please take a look (compile-test only).
There is still unclear moment for NETDEV_CHANGEMTU
since one could be doing this in say endless loop from
userspace calling device to flush all the time which
implies dev_put as a result :(

Comments are welcome (and complains as well). I'll be able to
continue handling (or reply to mail) tomorrow evening only.
Anyway -- this patch is ugly enough but may happen to work.
