Euhhh ... yes,  it sounds this problem comes from ipipe modifications, 
But I have not managed to find the reason ???
Is it a bug , a regression , a kernel routine where the problem is 
amplified once the patch is applied ?

I remember I have not had this problem with previous kernel releases 
(3.16.x) . I will check again with previous configurations, in order to 
find a way of comparison.
