SubjectRE: [PATCH v2] tipc: ensure head->lock is initialised
Date
Acked-by: Jon Maloy <jon.maloy@ericsson.com>

Actually, this was not what I meant, but it solves our problem in a simple and safe way, for now.
Later, when net-next opens, I will revert this and do it the right way, which is to change from skb_queue_purge() to __skb_queue_purge as Eric correctly noted.
That change has to be done at four locations, at least, and is too intrusive to post to 'net' now.
I'll send a cleanup patch when net-next re-opens.
