crash in tcp_fragment

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


	We have been seeing the crash cited below on a number of our systems
running kernel version 2.6.34, 2.6.36 and 2.6.38 using a number of
different GigE controllers.  I note that commit
2fceec13375e5d98ef033c6b0ee03943fc460950 introduced a band-aid for the
problem by replacing the BUG_ON() to a WARN().  I have two questions
related to this.

1) Is there a fix for the root cause?  Can I get a pointer to the commit
that claims to address the root cause?

2) Will disabling GSO/TSO make the problem go away?  That is, is
something related to GSO/TSO at the root of the problem?
