We hit a kernel OOPS.

Function free_fib_info resets nexthop_nh->nh_dev to NULL before releasing
fi. Other cpu might be accessing fi. Fixing it by delaying the releasing.

With the patch, we ran MTBF testing on Android mobile for 12 hours
and didn't trigger the issue.

Thank Eric for very detailed review/checking the issue.
