    SubjectIPF Montvale machine panic when running a network-relevent testing
    With kernel 2.6.26-rc5 and a git kernel just between rc4 and rc5, my
    kernel panic on my Montvale machine when I did an initial specweb2005
    testing between 2 machines.

    Below is the log.

    As a matter of fact, kernel paniced at statement
    "queue->rskq_accept_tail->dl_next = req" in function reqsk_queue_add, because
    queue->rskq_accept_tail is NULL. The call chain is:
    tcp_rcv_established => inet_csk_reqsk_queue_add => reqsk_queue_add.

    As I was running an initial specweb2005(configured 3500 sessions) testing between
    2 machines, there were lots of failure and many network connections were
    reestablished during the testing.

    In function tcp_v4_rcv, bh_lock_sock_nested(sk) (a kind of spinlock) is used to
    avoid race. But inet_csk_accept uses lock_sock(sk) (a kind of sleeper). Although
    lock_sock also accesses sk->sk_lock.slock, it looks like there is a race.
