This patch series handles exit from a network name space.


This is version 3

Basically there was three faults in the netns implementation.
- Kernel threads hold devices and preventing an exit.
- dst cache holds references to devices.
- Services was not always released.

Patch 1 & 3 contains the functionality
      4 renames funcctions
      5 removes empty functions
      6 Debuging.

- Avoid to increment the usage counter for kernel threads.
  this is done in the first patch.
- Patch 3 tries to restore the cleanup order.
  Add NETDEV_UNREGISTER notification for dst_reset

Revision 3 
Residies in patch 3
        Throttle renamed to enable.
        Comments from Julian implemented
        Check enable in ip_vs_in, ip_vs_out and ip_vs_forward_icmp*
        Remove in ip_vs_in_icmp*.
        ip_vs_svc_reset() moved into ip_vs_dst_event().
        ip_vs_service_cleanup() uses ip_vs_flush and mutex lock.
        ip_vs_unlink_service_nolock() added.
An netns exit could look like this
IPVS: Enter: __ip_vs_dev_cleanup, net/netfilter/ipvs/ip_vs_core.c
IPVS: stopping master sync thread 1286 ...
IPVS: stopping backup sync thread 1294 ...
