Thanks Massimo, I think patch is reasonably safe and should be taken as is :


[PATCH] virtio_net: use dev_kfree_skb_any() in free_old_xmit_skbs()

Because netpoll can call netdevice start_xmit() method with
irqs disabled, drivers should not call kfree_skb() from
their start_xmit(), but use dev_kfree_skb_any() instead.
