  IPv6 related kernel panic following upgrade to 3.13.0-43

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

  In Progress

Bug description:
  After updating a dozen machines from 3.13.0-40 to 3.13.0-43, they all
  kernel panic within the next 24 hours.

  I managed to pull the console from one over an IP KVM and it shows a panic related to IPv6 networking:

  All affected machines had native IPv6 connectivity to the Internet.

  Downgrading to 3.13.0-40 resolved the issue (so it's clearly a
  regression) and upgrading to lts-utopic 3.16.0-28-generic also
  appeared to do the trick.

  A friend also just reported seeing the exact same problem on his server which also has native IPv6 connectivity so the issue appears pretty widespread.
