pkt_sched: Fix qdisc list locking
Since some qdiscs call qdisc_tree_decrease_qlen() (so qdisc_lookup()) without rtnl_lock(), adding and deleting from a qdisc list needs additional locking. This patch adds global spinlock qdisc_list_lock and wrapper functions for modifying the list. It is considered as a temporary solution until hfsc_dequeue(), netem_dequeue() and tbf_dequeue() (or qdisc_tree_decrease_qlen()) are redone. With feedback from Herbert Xu and David S. Miller.
