Excellent. And just to clarify again, I do *not* expect the kernel to
fix/avoid the problem - I fully expect it to happen - the change in
these kernels is strictly to make sure that the system is still usable
after the problem happens. Can you verify that after reproducing? I
assume that before, when you reproduced the problem, you were no longer
able to create new (or destroy old) containers (i.e., new net
namespaces) - that should now be fixed, and you should be able to keep
creating new containers with no issues.

yep sorry, kernel building now should fix that to print seconds instead

This is a "continuation" of bug 1403152, as that bug has been marked
"fix released" and recent reports of failure may (or may not) be a new
bug. Any further reports of the problem should please be reported
here instead of that bug.
When shutting down and starting containers the container network
namespace may experience a dst reference counting leak which results
in this message repeated in the logs:
unregister_netdevice: waiting for lo to become free. Usage count =
This can cause issues when trying to create net network namespace and
thus block a user from creating new containers.
