net: Fix ipv6 neighbour unregister_sysctl_table warning
In my testing of 2.6.37 I was occassionally getting a warning about sysctl table entries being unregistered in the wrong order. Digging in it turns out this dates back to the last great sysctl reorg done where Al Viro introduced the requirement that sysctl directories needed to be created before and destroyed after the files in them. It turns out that in that great reorg /proc/sys/net/ipv6/neigh was overlooked. So this patch fixes that oversight and makes an annoying warning message go away. >------------[ cut here ]------------ >WARNING: at kernel/sysctl.c:1992 unregister_sysctl_table+0x134/0x164() >Pid: 23951, comm: kworker/u:3 Not tainted 2.6.37-350888.2010AroraKernelBeta.fc14.x86_64 #1 >Call Trace: > [<ffffffff8103e034>] warn_slowpath_common+0x80/0x98 > [<ffffffff8103e061>] warn_slowpath_null+0x15/0x17 > [<ffffffff810452f8>] unregister_sysctl_table+0x134/0x164 > [<ffffffff810e7834>] ? kfree+0xc4/0xd1 > [<ffffffff813439b2>] neigh_sysctl_unregister+0x22/0x3a > [<ffffffffa02cd14e>] addrconf_ifdown+0x33f/0x37b [ipv6] > [<ffffffff81331ec2>] ? skb_dequeue+0x5f/0x6b > [<ffffffffa02ce4a5>] addrconf_notify+0x69b/0x75c [ipv6] > [<ffffffffa02eb953>] ? ip6mr_device_event+0x98/0xa9 [ipv6] > [<ffffffff813d2413>] notifier_call_chain+0x32/0x5e > [<ffffffff8105bdea>] raw_notifier_call_chain+0xf/0x11 > [<ffffffff8133cdac>] call_netdevice_notifiers+0x45/0x4a > [<ffffffff8133d2b0>] rollback_registered_many+0x118/0x201 > [<ffffffff8133d3af>] unregister_netdevice_many+0x16/0x6d > [<ffffffff8133d571>] default_device_exit_batch+0xa4/0xb8 > [<ffffffff81337c42>] ? cleanup_net+0x0/0x194 > [<ffffffff81337a2a>] ops_exit_list+0x4e/0x56 > [<ffffffff81337d36>] cleanup_net+0xf4/0x194 > [<ffffffff81053318>] process_one_work+0x187/0x280 > [<ffffffff8105441b>] worker_thread+0xff/0x19f > [<ffffffff8105431c>] ? worker_thread+0x0/0x19f > [<ffffffff8105776d>] kthread+0x7d/0x85 > [<ffffffff81003824>] kernel_thread_helper+0x4/0x10 > [<ffffffff810576f0>] ? kthread+0x0/0x85 > [<ffffffff81003820>] ? kernel_thread_helper+0x0/0x10 >---[ end trace 8a7e9310b35e9486 ]--- Signed-off-by: Eric W.
