Thks for your mail.

This patch already included in kernel-3.3, but for our case, virtual tap device's delayed
Deletion will also cause kernel oops even in kernel3.3.

>Apparently bug is because struct net_bridge is freed while its embedded

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

Are you familiar with fake_rtable? I search the source, but only find one op that operate on the MTU.

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

I agreed with you to, so at least until now this problem still exsits in the latest kernel, I will also look into it,
And try to modify it from the root.

Thanks again.
