[ovs-dev] [PATCH net v4] net: openvswitch: fix to make sure flow_lookup() is not preempted

The flow_lookup() function uses per CPU variables, which must be called
with BH disabled. However, this is fine in the general NAPI use case
where the local BH is disabled. But, it's also called from the netlink
context. The below patch makes sure that even in the netlink path, the
BH is disabled.

In addition, u64_stats_update_begin() requires a lock to ensure one writer
which is not ensured here. Making it per-CPU and disabling NAPI (softirq)
ensures that there is always only one writer.

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

v2: - Add u64_stats_update_begin() sync point protection
    - Moved patch to net from net-next branch

v3: - Add comment to flow_lookup() call
    - Some update in code comments, and commit message

v4: - Rebase to latest net branch
