Hi again,
Please don't top post on netdev@. As usual I'll have to ask you to
reproduce this on a vanilla latest kernel (if possible on the current
-net or -net-next trees) without any modifications and please provide a
trace from such kernel. From the explanation it sounds like it would
take some time but noone will look into it seriously unless that happens.

Thank you,
 Nik
