This seems quite wrong, there is not a single use of synchronize_rcu_tasks() in net/,
we probably do not want this.

I bet that synchronize_net() is appropriate, if not please explain/comment why we want this instead.

Adding one synchronize_net() per TX queue is a killer for devices with 128 or 256 TX queues.

I would rather find a way of not calling qdisc_reset() from qdisc_deactivate().

This lockless pfifo_fast is a mess really.
