This does not work : If you release rcu_read_lock() here,
then the surrounding loop can not be continued without risking use-after-free

rcu_read_lock();
list_for_each_entry_rcu(ipvlan, &port->ipvlans, pnode) {
    ...
    cond_resched_rcu();
    // after this point bad things can happen
}


You probably should do instead :

diff --git a/drivers/net/ipvlan/ipvlan_core.c b/drivers/net/ipvlan/ipvlan_core.c
index 30cd0c4f0be0b4d1dea2c0a4d68d0e33d1931ebc..57617ff5565fb87035c13dcf1de9fa5431d04e10 100644
