I think the location that should have a call to gro_normal_list() is 
__netif_napi_del(). Let say, if the driver call a function that lead to 
gro_normal_one(), and add a skb to the rx_list while the napi poll is 
not scheduled, and the driver remove the napi context before a napi poll 
could be triggered, then the added skb will be lost.

Actually, this was the first solution that I tried with syzbot (It 
passed the test too).
Best regards,
Phi
