Yes, I did have the patch applied, but I had reenabled LOCKDEP_DEBUG.
I just tried with the LOCKDEP_DEBUG stuff turned off, and with this
configuration, the problem is resolved.  It seems that the patch
you made does fix the problem with /proc/net/packet. This new issue
seems to be a different problem.

So, I tried building another kernel with LOCKDEP enabled (.config attached):
With this kernel, I got:
