Check net/bridge/br_netfilter.c and commits e688a6048076 (net: introduce
DST_NOPEER dst flag ) 4adf0af6818f3ea5 (bridge: send correct MTU value
in PMTU (revised))

Apparently bug is because struct net_bridge is freed while its embedded
fake_rtable is still used by some packets.

I am not sure we are allowed to NULLify skb->dst, it might break

Maybe real fix would be to use a non embedded dst.
