'dev' can be NULL in that code branch of ip6_route_add(),
yet we're deferencing it to get dev->nd_net.

 	if ((cfg->fc_flags & RTF_REJECT) ||
 	    (dev && (dev->flags&IFF_LOOPBACK) && !(addr_type&IPV6_ADDR_LOOPBACK))) {
 		/* hold loopback dev/idev if we haven't done so. */
-		if (dev != init_net.loopback_dev) {
+		if (dev != dev->nd_net->loopback_dev) {

I'll add the appropriate check for NULL as follows:

    [IPV6]: Fix OOPS introduced by 5f5dace1ce001b24fb8286e09ffd3c4d2b547e09.
    
    In ip6_add_route(), 'dev' can be NULL, so check that before
    we try to deref dev->nd_net.
    
    Based upon a crash report by Jeff Garzik.
