Subject: [PATCH 3.13 010/259] net: fix UDP tunnel GSO of frag_list GRO packets -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Wei-Chun Chao <>

commit 5882a07c72093dc3a18e2d2b129fb200686bb6ee upstream.

This patch fixes a kernel BUG_ON in skb_segment. It is hit when
testing two VMs on openvswitch with one VM acting as VXLAN gateway.

During VXLAN packet GSO, skb_segment is called with skb->data
pointing to inner TCP payload. skb_segment calls skb_network_protocol
to retrieve the inner protocol. skb_network_protocol actually expects
skb->data to point to MAC and it calls pskb_may_pull with ETH_HLEN.
This ends up pulling in ETH_HLEN data from header tail. As a result,
pskb_trim logic is skipped and BUG_ON is hit later.

Move skb_push in front of skb_network_protocol so that skb->data
lines up properly.

kernel BUG at net/core/skbuff.c:2999!
