Hi Eric:

I had found out that the patch aaf92f(netfilter: conntrack: resched in nf_ct_iterate_cleanup) solve the problem,
this patch add cond_sched() in the nf_ct_iterate_cleanup() which will be called in the net notifier chain every time,
and I revert this patch at kernel 4.7-rc4 , it will panic for soft lockup, so I am not sure whether our patch is need,
it looks like if I disable the CONFIG for netfilter that would register the nf_ct_iterate_cleanup as notifier, the problem still be exist.

Thanks.
Ding
