decnet: use __dev_get_by_index instead of dev_get_by_index to find interface
The following call chain we can identify that dn_cache_getroute() is protected under rtnl_lock. So if we use __dev_get_by_index() instead of dev_get_by_index() to find interface handlers in it, this would help us avoid to change interface reference counter. rtnetlink_rcv() rtnl_lock() netlink_rcv_skb() dn_cache_getroute() rtnl_unlock() Signed-off-by: Ying Xue <ying.xue@windriver.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
