Oh, sorry, I did not see this until now. I just noticed it was still
floating in my tree with no upstream changes yet, then found your email.
I still have not seen any issues since applying your patch.

I was definitely seeing the issue on 3.4-rc3. I can try and see if it
still occurs with your patch removed, if that would help.

Do you have a box on which you can set up an SSH tunnel? In my case, I
can reproduce it easily with three boxes. From home, I run ssh to my work
box to establish the layer 2 tunnel. This goes through a ProxyCommand to
jump through an entry box, but I don't think that should matter. I use a
cheap tunnel start script similar to this:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/eth0/proxy_arp
ssh -w any:any <work box> "ifconfig tun0 $work_tun_ip pointopoint
$home_tun_ip; echo 'ifconfig tun0 $home_tun_ip pointopoint $work_tun_ip
&& ip route add $work_net via $work_tun_ip'; sleep 1d" | sh -v

...there's probably a better way, but it works. To reproduce, I log in
to a third box over this tunnel, and start a "vmstat 1", so that packets
keep coming back to the tunnel host. ^C on the SSH session will then
produce an Oops within a second.

With CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG=y and booting with slub_debug=FZPU, I got the
Redzone overwritten notice. Without it, the box usually Oopses and
hangs immediately. Sometimes, I might have to reconnect the tunnel and
^C it once more. If I don't have that vmstat session open, it usually
doesn't crash.

Does this work for you?
