The NULL ptr dereference is from following the current->nsproxy ptr
in ppp_register_channel().

This was broken by

commit 8aac62706adaaf0fab02c4327761561c8bda9448
Author: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@...hat.com>
Date:   Fri Jun 14 21:09:49 2013 +0200

     move exit_task_namespaces() outside of exit_notify()

which moved the exit_task_namespaces(tsk) before disassociate_ctty().
