Subject: Possible bug in bonding 


Hi,

As reported last week by Or Gerlitz and confirmed by me, there is a kernel crash 
when trying to unenslave all ib slaves (which leads to bonding master destruction).
I also found that it happens with Ethernet slaves if following the steps:

1. unenslaving all slaves via sysfs
2. deleting the bonding master via sysfs


I see that in commit 6603a6f25e4bca922a7dfbf0bf03072d98850176 
the order of the bonding master destruction sequence was changed 
in 2 places (a part of the commitdiff is below).

Although I might be missing something it looks like a bug to me
to dereference the dev pointer after unregistering it. Am I right?

I also see that the kernel crash doesn't happen when reverting from this 
(part of) the patch.

I'd like to have your opinion please.

thanks

    bonding: Convert more locks to _bh, acquire rtnl, for new locking
    
    	Convert more lock acquisitions to _bh flavor to avoid deadlock
    with workqueue activity and add acquisition of RTNL in appropriate places.
    Affects ALB mode, as well as core bonding functions and sysfs.
