[patch 06/10][NETNS][IP6_FIB] pass the network namespace parameter to timer callback

The fib tables are now relative to the namespace. When the garbage
collector timer expires, we must have a network namespace in order 
to retrieve the tables. For now this is the init_net, but we should
be able to have a timer per namespace and use the timer callback
parameter to pass the network namespace from the expired timer.

The timer callback, fib6_run_gc, is actually used to be called 
synchronously by some functions and asynchronously when the timer 
expires.

When the timer expires, the delay specified for fib6_run_gc parameter
is alway zero. So, I changed fib6_run_gc to not be a timer callback
but a function called by the timer callback and I added a timer callback
where its work is just to retrieve from the data arg of the timer the 
network namespace and call fib6_run_gc with zero expiring time and
the network namespace parameters. That makes the code cleaner for the
fib6_run_gc callers.
