Sorry, don't have any more information. From the bugzilla report:
Message from syslogd@arm at Oct 24 20:05:09 ...
kernel:Process ipset (pid: 2055, stack limit = 0xe8404220)

So ipset has a problem ...

The device is in production so I can't play around here. Nevertheless I
can try a patch. But should be easy to reproduce in developers testing
environment with shorewall/netfilter and ipset. As shorewall6 is
activated it might also be an IPv6 issue.

Kernel 4.2 seems to me not well tested in the netfilter parts at all
(Bug with already known bugfix
https://lists.debian.org/debian-kernel/2015/10/msg00034.html was
triggered on 2 of 3 of my machines, the new bug on 1 of 1 tested machine).

Ciao,
Gerhard
