Subject[PATCH 08/18] rhashtable: clean up dereference of ->future_tbl.
Using rht_dereference_bucket() to dereference
->future_tbl looks like a type error, and could be confusing.
Using rht_dereference_rcu() to test a pointer for NULL
adds an unnecessary barrier - rcu_access_pointer() is preferred
for NULL tests when no lock is held.

This uses 3 different ways to access ->future_tbl.
- if we know the mutex is held, use rht_dereference()
- if we don't hold the mutex, and are only testing for NULL,
use rcu_access_pointer()
- otherwise (using RCU protection for true dereference),
use rht_dereference_rcu().

Note that this includes a simplification of the call to
rhashtable_last_table() - we don't do an extra dereference
before the call any more.
