        It is not critical. I waited weeks the net tree to be
copied into net-next because it collides with the recent
"ipvs: make the service replacement more robust" change in
net tree :) But if a rcu_barrier in the netns cleanup looks
scary enough you can push it to nf. IMHO, it just adds
unneeded delay there.
