Sorry for the misleading description in the patch. We found the panic
in 126.96.36.199 is caused by changing cp->flags without protection. In
188.8.131.52, ip_vs_process_message changes cp->flags without protection
while update active/inactive flags for the connection.
After code inspiration, we found in 3.x kernel, it is accidentally
fixed by commit f73181c. But with ip_vs_app changes,
ip_vs_ftp_init_conn() will have chance to change cp->flags without
protection. So it is a potential bug in 3.x kernel.
