net-sysfs: Use rtnl_trylock in wireless sysfs methods.
Eric W. Biederman [Fri, 19 Feb 2010 13:23:47 +0000 (13:23 +0000)]
The wireless sysfs methods like the rest of the networking sysfs
methods are removed with the rtnl_lock held and block until
the existing methods stop executing.  So use rtnl_trylock
and restart_syscall so that the code continues to work.
