[ovs-dev] [PATCH net v2] net: openvswitch: fix to make sure flow_lookup() is not preempted

The flow_lookup() function uses per CPU variables, which must not be
preempted. However, this is fine in the general napi use case where
the local BH is disabled. But, it's also called in the netlink
context, which is preemptible. The below patch makes sure that even
in the netlink path, preemption is disabled.

In addition, the u64_stats_update_begin() sync point was not protected,
making the sync point part of the per CPU variable fixed this.

Fixes: eac87c413bf9 ("net: openvswitch: reorder masks array based on usage")
