Krishna Kumar - Feb. 4, 2010, 9:14 a.m.
From: Krishna Kumar <krkumar2@in.ibm.com>

When using ipv6+netfilter on vlan devices, we were getting
this hang consistantly in an internal distribution:

"unregister_netdevice: waiting for eth0.103 to become free. Usage count = 9"

Sometimes the hang is temporary lasting ~45 secs, and at
other times it is permanent. While fixing the internal bug,
I found the same bug exists in the current kernel.

In ip6_route_me_harder, besides dropping dst, I also moved
the check for dst->error up instead of waiting for the
xfrm_lookup result.

(untested since this bug was not reproducible on my system,
 but this patch fixes the hang on the internal distro bits)
