and you decode a 64 bits kernel

This is more probably
 
<f0> ff 0a       lock decl (%edx)

part of : 

secpath_put(skb->sp);


So some skb has a strange/buggy skb->sp (value 0x00010090)

It looks like skb->cb[xxx] overwrote skb->sp

Please check you have CONFIG_XFRM=y, and that you did rebuild all your modules after
patching your kernel...
