[NET]: Set a separate lockdep class for neighbour table's proxy_queue
Pavel Emelianov [Tue, 17 Apr 2007 19:45:31 +0000 (12:45 -0700)]
Otherwise the following calltrace will lead to a wrong
lockdep warning:

  neigh_proxy_process()
    `- lock(neigh_table->proxy_queue.lock);
  arp_redo /* via tbl->proxy_redo */
  arp_process
  neigh_event_ns
  neigh_update
  skb_queue_purge
    `- lock(neighbor->arp_queue.lock);

This is not a deadlock actually, as neighbor table's proxy_queue
and the neighbor's arp_queue are different queues.

Lockdep thinks there is a deadlock as both queues are initialized
with skb_queue_head_init() and thus have a common class.
