Subject: [PATCH 04/11] IB/ipoib: Verify address handle validity on send

From: Moni Shoua <>

When the bonding device senses a carrier loss of its active slave it replaces
that slave with a new one. In between the times when the carrier of an IPoIB
device goes down and ipoib_neigh is destroyed, it is possible that the
bonding driver will send a packet on a new slave that uses an old ipoib_neigh.
This patch detects and prevents this from happenning.
