[GENETLINK]: Relax dances with genl_lock.
Pavel Emelyanov [Wed, 13 Feb 2008 06:16:33 +0000 (22:16 -0800)]
The genl_unregister_family() calls the genl_unregister_mc_groups(),
which takes and releases the genl_lock and then locks and releases
this lock itself.

Relax this behavior, all the more so the genl_unregister_mc_groups()
is called from genl_unregister_family() only.
