Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next] rhashtable: rhashtable_remove() must unlink
 in both tbl and future_tbl

Hi Thomas,

I will be on vacation in next few days. So if you have an updated patch
resolving the issue, please let Richard(richard.alpe@...csson.com) help
you to verify because he initially found the issue. After I identified
what it closely was related to rhashtable and it also happened in
netlink, I posted it on netdev mail list.

Regards,
Ying
