Subject: 2.6.22-rc3-mm1 - pppd hanging in netdev_run_todo while holding mutex

Under 22-rc2-mm1, if my VPN connection got reset, ppp0 just quietly went away.

Under 22-rc3-mm1, it seems to end up wedged and waiting for references to
go away:

'echo t > /proc/sysrq_trigger' shows pppd hung up here:

Which in itself wouldn't be so bad, except that it's holding a mutex and
lots of other stuff gets wedged up waiting for it (here's 1 of 6 processes
that was wedged this morning):

(And of course, you can't shutdown cleanly, because /etc/init.d/network tries
to down other interfaces on the way out, and....)

I'd bisect this, except I don't have a better way to replicate it than "wait for
our VPN box to reset the connection after 24 hours of connect" - basically means
I get 2 tries per weekend..)

An hour or so of digging through the -rc3-mm1 broken-out/ didn't find any
obvious-to-me culprits.  Any ideas/suggestions?
