Actually there might be a refcnt problem. What if the following happens:
refcnt = 2 (1 for timer, 1 init)
	A			B
inet_frag_find() +1 (3)
ipq_kill() -2 (1)          inet_frag_evict() (sees it before fq_unlink)
spin_unlock(q.lock)
			   ->frag_expire() -1 (0 -> frag_destroy())
*ipq_put(freed frag)*

Or the other way around, last ipq_put() is executed before frag_expire
so we have a freed frag on the expire list.
