In the IPV6_FL_A_GET case the hash is checked for flowlabels
with the given label. If it is not found, the lock, protecting 
the hash, is dropped to be re-get for writing. After this a
newly allocated entry is inserted, but no checks are performed
to catch a classical SMP race, when the conflicting label may 
be inserted on another cpu.

Use the (currently unused) return value from fl_intern() to
return the conflicting entry (if found) and re-check, whether
we can reuse it (IPV6_FL_F_EXCL) or return -EEXISTS.

Also add the comment, about why not re-lookup the current
sock for conflicting flowlabel entry.
