Subject: Re: cxgb3: Fix kernel crash caused by uninitialized l2t_entry.arpq

From: Roland Dreier <>

> Commit 147e70e6 ("cxgb3: Use SKB list interfaces instead of home-grown
> implementation.") causes a crash in t3_l2t_send_slow() when an iWARP
> connection request is received.  This is because the new l2t_entry.arpq
> skb queue is never initialized, and therefore trying to add an skb to
> it causes a NULL dereference.  With the old code there was no need to
> initialize the queues because the l2t_entry structures were zeroed,
> and the code used NULL to mean empty.
> Fix this by adding __skb_queue_head_init() when all the l2t_entry
> structures get allocated.
