[ Upstream commit 16ba3defb8bd01a9464ba4820a487f5b196b455b ]

When using enhanced mode for IPoIB, two threads may execute xmit in
parallel to two different TX queues while the target is the same.
In this case, both of them will add the same neighbor to the path's
neigh link list and we might see the following message:

  list_add double add: new=ffff88024767a348, prev=ffff88024767a348...
  WARNING: lib/list_debug.c:31__list_add_valid+0x4e/0x70
  ipoib_start_xmit+0x477/0x680 [ib_ipoib]

Two SKB are scheduled to be transmitted from two cores.
In ipoib_start_xmit, both gets NULL when calling ipoib_neigh_get.
Two calls to neigh_add_path are made. One thread takes the spin-lock
and calls ipoib_neigh_alloc which creates the neigh structure,
then (after the __path_find) the neigh is added to the path's neigh
link list. When the second thread enters the critical section it also
calls ipoib_neigh_alloc but in this case it gets the already allocated
ipoib_neigh structure, which is already linked to the path's neigh
link list and adds it again to the list. Which beside of triggering
the list, it creates a loop in the linked list. This loop leads to
endless loop inside path_rec_completion.

Check list_empty(&neigh->list) before adding to the list.
Add a similar fix in "ipoib_multicast.c::ipoib_mcast_send"
