Subject[PATCH 3.4 23/32] ipv6: fix possible seqlock deadlock in ip6_finish_output2
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Hannes Frederic Sowa <hannes@stressinduktion.org>

[ Upstream commit 7f88c6b23afbd31545c676dea77ba9593a1a14bf ]

IPv6 stats are 64 bits and thus are protected with a seqlock. By not
disabling bottom-half we could deadlock here if we don't disable bh and
a softirq reentrantly updates the same mib.
