Reliability Fix relating to CARP, VLAN's and network load

Contributed by grey on from the patching makes perfect, or at least better dept.

Thanks to Brad Smith for the heads up on this fix from yesterday:

Under a certain network load the kernel can run out of stack space. This was encountered in an environment using CARP on a VLAN interface. This issue initially manifested itself as a FPU related crash on boot up.

As always, you can find this listed on Patches can be downloaded for 3.4 and 3.5.
