cls_flower: fix use after free in flower S/W path

If flower filter is created without the skip_sw flag, fl_mask_put()
can race with fl_classify() and we can destroy the mask rhashtable
while a lookup operation is accessing it.

Fix the above waiting for a RCU grace period before destroying the
rhashtable: we need to use tcf_queue_work(), as rhashtable_destroy()
must run in process context, as pointed out by Cong Wang.

v1 -> v2: use tcf_queue_work to run rhashtable_destroy().
