I have a reasonable theory now..

Based on the ops you provided this FSM sequence is possible

  does rdma_resolve_ip(addr_handler)

			    [.. handler still running ..]

  does rdma_resolve_ip(addr_handler)


Which, if it happens fast enough, could trigger a situation where the
'&id_priv->id.route.addr.dev_addr' "handle" is in the req_list twice
beacause the addr_handler work queue hasn't yet got to the point of
deleting it from the req_list before the the 2nd one is added.

The issue is rdma_addr_cancel() has to be called rdma_resolve_ip() can
be called again.

Skipping it will cause 'req_list' to have two items in the internal
linked list with the same key and it will not cancel the newest one
with the active timer. This would cause the use after free syndrome
like this trace is showing.

I can make a patch, but have no way to know if it is any good :\
