Ok, I thought your patch was specifically meant to fix Denys's bug.

The confusion comes from the fact that you mention Denys's crash in
your commit message:

--------------------
When dev_pick_tx() caches tx queue_index on a socket, we must check
socket dst_entry matches skb one, or risk a crash later, as reported by
Denys Fedorysychenko, if old packets are in flight during a route
change, involving devices with different number of queues.
--------------------

Anyways, I studied your patch once more and read the thread discussion
with Krishna again and your patch looks fine.  I'll apply it to
net-2.6, thanks!
