By the way my patch was for current kernels, not for 2.6.39

For instance, I was not able to reproduce the crash with 3.3

RCU in neighbour code was added in 2.6.37, but it looks like this code
is a bit fragile because all the kfree_skb() are done while neighbour
locks are held.

So if a skb destructor triggers a new call to neighbour code, I presume
some bad things can happen. LOCKDEP could eventually help to detect

You could try to replace these kfree_skb() calls to dev_kfree_skb_irq()
just in case.

(Do not forget the __skb_queue_purge() ones)

Try a LOCKDEP build as well.
