	Indeed it does, I missed that the callbacks can sleep.

	I don't think moving the call to netdev_rx_handler_unregister is
sufficient to close the race.  If it's moved above the call to
bond_upper_dev_unlink, the probe won't be called afterwards, but the
LACPDU could have arrived just prior to the unregister and changed the
port state in the bond_3ad_lacpdu_recv call sequence ("step 2",
something in the LACPDU causes AD_PORT_SELECTED to be cleared).  Later,
bond_3ad_state_machine_handler runs in a separate work queue context,
and could process the effect of the LACPDU after the rx_handler
unregister, and still race with the upper_dev_unlink.

	I suspect the solution is to rework ad_port_selection_logic to
correctly handle the situation where no aggregator is available.  Off
the top of my head, I think something along the lines of:

diff --git a/drivers/net/bonding/bond_3ad.c b/drivers/net/bonding/bond_3ad.c
index 6908822d9773..eb6223e4510e 100644

+			aggregator = __get_first_agg(port);
+			ad_agg_selection_logic(aggregator, update_slave_arr);
+
+			return;
 		}
 	}
 	/* if all aggregator's ports are READY_N == TRUE, set ready=TRUE

	I've not compiled or tested this, but the theory is that it will
reselect a new aggregator for the bond (which happens anyway later in
the function), then returns, leaving "port" as not AD_PORT_SELECTED.
The next run of the state machine should attempt to select it again, and
presumably succeed at that time.

	This may leave the bond with no active ports for one interval
between runs of the state machine, unfortunately, but it should
eliminate the panic.

	Another possibility might be netdev_rx_handler_unregister, then
bond_3ad_unbind_slave, and finally bond_upper_dev_unlink, but I'm not
sure right off if that would have other side effects.

	Yufeng, would you be able to test the above and see if it
resolves the issue in your test?
