Nope, please don't do this, the xt_set can also be used from nft_compat
which doesn't use the xtables packet traversers.

I'd rather use synchonize_rcu() once in ip_set_destroy(), that will
make sure all concurrent traversers are gone.

That said, I still do not understand this fix, the
match / target destroy hooks are called after the table has
been completely replaced, i.e., while packets can still be in flight
no packets should be within the ipset lookup functions when
this happens, and no more packets should be able to enter them.

AFAICS the request to delete the set will fail if its still referenced
via any rule. xt_set holds references to the sets.

1. set have dropped all references
2. userspace *can* delete the set
3. we get crash because xt_set was still within a sets eval

I don't see how 3) can happen, xt table replace isn't supposed
to call the xt_set destroy functions until after table replace.

We even release the entire x_table blob right afterwards.
