[INET]: Remove per bucket rwlock in tcp/dccp ehash table.
As done two years ago on IP route cache table (commit 22c047ccbc68fa8f3fa57f0e8f906479a062c426) , we can avoid using one lock per hash bucket for the huge TCP/DCCP hash tables. On a typical x86_64 platform, this saves about 2MB or 4MB of ram, for litle performance differences. (we hit a different cache line for the rwlock, but then the bucket cache line have a better sharing factor among cpus, since we dirty it less often). For netstat or ss commands that want a full scan of hash table, we perform fewer memory accesses. Using a 'small' table of hashed rwlocks should be more than enough to provide correct SMP concurrency between different buckets, without using too much memory. Sizing of this table depends on num_possible_cpus() and various CONFIG settings. This patch provides some locking abstraction that may ease a future work using a different model for TCP/DCCP table.
