It's not even sure there's a patch for this. There were numerous changes
to ipset between 4.1 and 4.2 and very few in 4.3-rc, any you backported
them all. Also, Gerhard's trace in the bugzilla report above is very
poor, there's just one line of the panic, nothing exploitable at all,
nothing even indicates that it is related to ipset at all.

Gerhard, it would be easier if you could bisect between 4.1 and 4.2 to
find what patch introduced the regression if you can easily reproduce
the issue. That would make it more obvious what to look at and the
patch author might have some ideas about the real problem.
