net: Fix ipv6 neighbour unregister_sysctl_table warning
Eric W. Biederman [Tue, 1 Feb 2011 04:54:17 +0000 (20:54 -0800)]
In my testing of 2.6.37 I was occassionally getting a warning about
sysctl table entries being unregistered in the wrong order.  Digging
in it turns out this dates back to the last great sysctl reorg done
where Al Viro introduced the requirement that sysctl directories
needed to be created before and destroyed after the files in them.

It turns out that in that great reorg /proc/sys/net/ipv6/neigh was
overlooked.  So this patch fixes that oversight and makes an annoying
warning message go away.
