l2tp: fix a race in l2tp_ip_sendmsg()
Eric Dumazet [Fri, 8 Jun 2012 06:25:00 +0000 (06:25 +0000)]
Commit 081b1b1bb27f (l2tp: fix l2tp_ip_sendmsg() route handling) added
a race, in case IP route cache is disabled.

In this case, we should not do the dst_release(&rt->dst), since it'll
free the dst immediately, instead of waiting a RCU grace period.
