[PATCH] netxen: memory corruption by netxen_p3_get_mac_addr.

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Santosh Nayak <santoshprasadnayak@xxxxxxxxx>

'mac_hi' and 'mac_lo' are 32 bit unsinged int but we are modifing
64 bit of memory during mac calculation. To fix this issue define
a local variable of 64 bit and do mac calculation.

Remove 'le64_to_cpu' to fix endian issue.
