Subject[PATCH 13/18] rhashtable: don't hold lock on first table throughout insertion.
rhashtable_try_insert() currently hold a lock on the bucket in
the first table, while also locking buckets in subsequent tables.
This is unnecessary and looks like a hold-over from some earlier
version of the implementation.

As insert and remove always lock a bucket in each table in turn, and
as insert only inserts in the final table, there cannot be any races
that are not covered by simply locking a bucket in each table in turn.

When an insert call reaches that last table it can be sure that there
is no match entry in any other table as it has searched them all, and
insertion never happens anywhere but in the last table. The fact that
code tests for the existence of future_tbl while holding a lock on
the relevant bucket ensures that two threads inserting the same key
will make compatible decisions about which is the "last" table.

This simplifies the code and allows the ->rehash field to be
discarded.

We still need a way to ensure that a dead bucket_table is never
re-linked by rhashtable_walk_stop(). This can be achieved by
calling call_rcu() inside the locked region, and checking
->rcu.func in rhashtable_walk_stop(). If it is not NULL, then
the bucket table is empty and dead.
