Subject[PATCH review for 3.18 12/30] IB/ipoib: Replace list_del of the neigh->list with list_del_init
Date
From: Feras Daoud <ferasda@mellanox.com>

[ Upstream commit c586071d1dc8227a7182179b8e50ee92cc43f6d2 ]

In order to resolve a situation where a few process delete
the same list element in sequence and cause panic, list_del
is replaced with list_del_init. In this case if the first
process that calls list_del releases the lock before acquiring
it again, other processes who can acquire the lock will call
list_del_init.

Fixes: b63b70d87741 ("IPoIB: Use a private hash table for path lookup")
