Hmm, I checked again.
- reproducible with 4.10 without your hack and without "net: hso:
register netdev later to avoid a race condition"
- reproducible with 4.11rc8 without you hack and without "net: hso:
register netdev later to avoid a race condition"
- not reproducible with 4.11rc8 without your hack but with "net: hso:
register netdev later to avoid a race condition"

hmm, am I not patient enough to have it crash? Or have you mixed up
this patch with my earlier patch about the rmmod problem?
Just asking to avoid debugging a possibly non-existent problem.

Regards,
Andreas
