Subject: Hung task when calling clone() due to netfilter/slab

Hi All,

I've stumbled on the following oops when testing the trinity fuzzer using KVM tool, running on the latest -next kernel:

[ 3960.845373] INFO: task trinity:31661 blocked for more than 120 seconds.

[ 3960.937810] Kernel panic - not syncing: hung_task: blocked tasks

I had two trinity processes running, and both were stuck at clone() syscalls:

clone(clone_flags=0xcc2820ff, newsp=0xf3f270[page_0xff], parent_tid=0xf3f270[page_0xff], child_tid=0x400000, regs=0xf41290[page_allocs])
clone(clone_flags=0x45706000, newsp=0xf3f270[page_0xff], parent_tid=0x7f9bf26f0000, child_tid=0xf3f270[page_0xff], regs=0xf41290[page_allocs])

This is the second time I got this oops, and both times it originated with clone calling up to the netfilter connection tracker code, so I don't think that it's coincidental that thats the origin.
