Subject: Re: [NET-NEXT PATCH 3/3] ixgbe: Fix set_ringparam in ixgbe to use
 the same memory pools.

From: Jeff Kirsher <>
Date: Thu, 25 Dec 2008 01:02:41 -0800

> The adapter rings are kcalloc()'d, but in set_ringparam() in ixgbe_ethtool,
> we replace that memory from the vmalloc() pool.  This can result in a NULL
> pointer reference when trying to modify the rings at a later time, or on
> device removal.
