Subject: Bug in br_handle_frame

Hi,

I have recently discovered that kernel 3.12.10 is occasionally crashing 
due to NULL pointer dereference in function br_handle_frame when we 
reconfigure the bridge, because function br_port_get_rcu returns NULL.

It is very hard for us to replicate this issue, because it happens about 
once per month in our testing environment, but I have created the 
attached patch. Can you please check it? The latest kernel seems to be 
affected too.

Best regards

Tomas
