can_rx_register callbacks may be called concurrently to the call to
can_rx_unregister. The callbacks and callback data, though, are protected by
RCU and the struct sock reference count.

So the callback data is really attached to the life of sk, meaning that it
should be released on sk_destruct. However, bcm_remove_op calls tasklet_kill,
and RCU callbacks may be called under RCU softirq, so that cannot be used on
kernels before the introduction of HRTIMER_MODE_SOFT.

However, bcm_rx_handler is called under RCU protection, so after calling
can_rx_unregister, we may call synchronize_rcu in order to wait for any RCU
read-side critical sections to finish. That is, bcm_rx_handler won't be called
anymore for those ops. So, we only free them, after we do that synchronize_rcu.
