Thanks guys, here an updated version then, before linkwatch surgery ?

In this version, I force the event to be sent synchronously.

[PATCH net-next-2.6] linkwatch: linkwatch_forget_dev() to speedup device dismantle

time ip link del eth3.103 ; time ip link del eth3.104 ; time ip link del eth3.105

real 0m1.022s
user 0m0.000s

One problem of current schem in vlan dismantle phase is the
holding of device done by following chain :

vlan_dev_stop() ->
netif_carrier_off(dev) ->
linkwatch_fire_event(dev) ->
dev_hold() ...

And __linkwatch_run_queue() runs up to one second later...

A generic fix to this problem is to add a linkwatch_forget_dev() method
to unlink the device from the list of watched devices.

dev->link_watch_next becomes dev->link_watch_list (and use a bit more memory),
to be able to unlink device in O(1).

After patch :
time ip link del eth3.103 ; time ip link del eth3.104 ; time ip link del eth3.105
