peernet2id_alloc() is racy without rtnl_lock() as refcount_read(&peer->count)
under net->nsid_lock does not guarantee, peer is alive:

rcu_read_lock()
peernet2id_alloc()                            ..
  spin_lock_bh(&net->nsid_lock)               ..
  refcount_read(&peer->count) (!= 0)          ..
  ..                                          put_net()
  ..                                            cleanup_net()
  ..                                              for_each_net(tmp)
  ..                                                spin_lock_bh(&tmp->nsid_lock)
  ..                                                __peernet2id(tmp, net) == -1
  ..                                                    ..
  ..                                                    ..
    __peernet2id_alloc(alloc == true)                   ..
  ..                                                    ..
rcu_read_unlock()                                       ..
..                                                synchronize_rcu()
..                                                kmem_cache_free(net)

After the above situation, net::netns_id contains id pointing to freed memory,
and any other dereferencing by the id will operate with this freed memory.

Currently, peernet2id_alloc() is used under rtnl_lock() everywhere except
ovs_vport_cmd_fill_info(), and this race can't occur. But peernet2id_alloc()
is generic interface, and better we fix it before someone really starts
use it in wrong context.

v2: Don't place refcount_read(&net->count) under net->nsid_lock
    as suggested by Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>
v3: Rebase on top of net-next
