ipset *triggered* the problem. The whole stack dump would tell more.
OK, find the stack traces in the bug report:

Kernel 4.1.10 triggered also a kernel dump when playing with ipset commands
and IPv6, details in the bug report ....

Kernel 4.2 seems to me not well tested in the netfilter parts at all
(Bug with already known bugfix was
triggered on 2 of 3 of my machines, the new bug on 1 of 1 tested machine).
There's a reason why Greg maintains stable and LTS kernels :-)
Stable kernels don't crash but definiton. :-)

At least triggered 2 kernel panics in 5min, even with 4.1.10 and ipset
commands ...
Does this happen also with Linus's tree? I suggest you ask the
networking developers about this on netdev@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, there's
nothing that I can do on my own about this, sorry.

Patch is now available, see:
[PATCH 0/3] ipset patches for nf
[ANNOUNCE] ipset 6.27 released

Requires also new userland ipset version.

Please integrate it upstream.

Thanx to Jozsef Kadlecsik for fixing it.
