This patch should not make any difference on 4.1 and later because
4.1 is where I rewrote rhashtable resizing and it should work (or
if it is broken then the latest kernel should be broken too).

Having looked at your message agin I don't think the issue I
alluded to is relevant since the symptom there ought to be a
straight kernel lock-up as opposed to just a user-space one because
you will end up with the kernel sending a message to itself.
And the fact that 4.2 works is more indicative as the bug is
present in both 4.1 and 4.2.
I'll try to reproduce this in 4.1 as time permits but no promises.
