l2tp: don't register sessions in l2tp_session_create()
commit 3953ae7b218df4d1e544b98a393666f9ae58a78c upstream.
Sessions created by l2tp_session_create() aren't fully initialised:
some pseudo-wire specific operations need to be done before making the
session usable. Therefore the PPP and Ethernet pseudo-wires continue
working on the returned l2tp session while it's already been exposed to
the rest of the system.
This can lead to various issues. In particular, the session may enter
the deletion process before having been fully initialised, which will
confuse the session removal code.
This patch moves session registration out of l2tp_session_create(), so
that callers can control when the session is exposed to the rest of the
system. This is done by the new l2tp_session_register() function.
Only pppol2tp_session_create() can be easily converted to avoid
modifying its session after registration (the debug message is dropped
in order to avoid the need for holding a reference on the session).
For pppol2tp_connect() and l2tp_eth_create()), more work is needed.
That'll be done in followup patches. For now, let's just register the
session right after its creation, like it was done before. The only
difference is that we can easily take a reference on the session before
registering it, so, at least, we're sure it's not going to be freed
while we're working on it.
