Subject: Re: one more... iproute commands lockup whole system

Well, my case is my own mistake, i guess it is just misconfiguration, not 
actual bug. And also it is good push for me "read doc's and think well before 
adding rules".
Maybe it can be in TODO, but it is not N1 priority i guess. There is more 
important things, what u want to do. Another thing, adding one more field in 
skb will add more overhead to whole kernel(i guess).

I have some interesting thing:

Rules:
tc qdisc del dev eth0.5 root
tc qdisc add dev eth0.5 handle 1: root htb
tc class add dev eth0.5 parent 1:0 classid 1:2 htb rate 128Kbit

tc qdisc add dev eth0.5 parent 1:2 handle 2: prio

tc filter add dev eth0.5 parent 1: protocol ip prio 10 u32 \
match ip src 195.69.208.253/32 flowid 1:2

tc filter add dev eth0.5 parent 2: protocol ip prio 10 u32 \
    match ip src 195.69.208.253/32 flowid 2:1 \
    action mirred egress redirect dev eth0.6

(it is not working, but just i tried few things)

At morning i wakeup and see in dmesg, also not sure if it's bug or result of 
misconfiguration:
