--- Exception: c01 (System Call) at 00000080da560cfc

The root cause was an EEH error, which sent us down the offload_close path in
the cxgb3 driver, which in turn sets cdev->l2opt to NULL, without regard for
upper layer driver (like the cxgbi drivers) which might have execution contexts
in the middle of its use. The result is the oops above, when t3_l2t_get attempts
to dereference L2DATA(cdev)->nentries in arp_hash right after the EEH error handler sets it to NULL.

The fix is to prevent the setting of the NULL pointer until after there are no
further users of it.  The t3cdev->l2opt pointer is now converted to be an rcu
pointer and the L2DATA macro is now called under the protection of the
rcu_read_lock().  When the EEH error path:
t3_adapter_error->offload_close->cxgb3_offload_deactivate
Is exectured, setting of that l2opt pointer to NULL, is now gated on an rcu
quiescence point, preventing, allowing L2DATA callers to safely check for a NULL
pointer without concern that the underlying data will be freeded before the
pointer is dereferenced.

This has been tested by the reporter and shown to fix the reproted oops
