IB/core: lock client data with lists_rwsem
An ib_client callback that is called with the lists_rwsem locked only for read is protected from changes to the IB client lists, but not from ib_unregister_device() freeing its client data. This is because ib_unregister_device() will remove the device from the device list with lists_rwsem locked for write, but perform the rest of the cleanup, including the call to remove() without that lock. Mark client data that is undergoing de-registration with a new going_down flag in the client data context. Lock the client data list with lists_rwsem for write in addition to using the spinlock, so that functions calling the callback would be able to lock only lists_rwsem for read and let callbacks sleep. Since ib_unregister_client() now marks the client data context, no need for remove() to search the context again, so pass the client data directly to remove() callbacks.
