[PATCH] be2net: fix a race in be_xmit()

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

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@xxxxxxxxxx>

As soon as hardware is notified of a transmit, we no longer can assume
skb can be dereferenced, as TX completion might have freed the packet.
