The important part of qrtr_port_lookup() wrt synchronization is that the
function returns a reference counted struct qrtr_sock, or fail.

As such we need only to ensure that an decrement of the object's
refcount happens inbetween the finding of the object in the idr and
qrtr_port_lookup()'s own increment of the object.

By using RCU and putting a synchronization point after we remove the
mapping from the idr, but before it can be released we achieve this -
with the benefit of not having to hold the mutex in qrtr_port_lookup().
