rcu: convert uses of rcu_assign_pointer(x, NULL) to RCU_INIT_POINTER
When assigning a NULL value to an RCU protected pointer, no barrier is needed. The rcu_assign_pointer, used to handle that but will soon change to not handle the special case. Convert all rcu_assign_pointer of NULL value. //smpl @@ expression P; @@ - rcu_assign_pointer(P, NULL) + RCU_INIT_POINTER(P, NULL) // </smpl> Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@vyatta.com> Acked-by: Paul E.
