Description of problem:
This bug was fixed in ip_queue already, but the ipv6
variant was overlooked at that time.
We have to explicitly disable software interrupts, else the locking in
the nf_reinject() path will end up potentially deadlocking with any
intervening software interrupt.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.setup with IPV6
