Subject: Re: [Fwd: [PATCH] [NIU] VLAN does not work with niu driver]


Here was what happened to this patch:

I got system hard hung a couple of times when testing the niu driver 
with "__pskb_pull_tail(skb, min(len, VLAN_ETH_HLEN))" fix. I thought 
that the fix was not working at the time, so I came up with the fixes 
moving around the pointers. I didn't see the hard hung with that code. 
When you asked me to explain the fix, I had the second thought to 
re-test the "__pskb_pull_tail(skb, min(len, VLAN_ETH_HLEN))" fix. I 
didn't experience any hard hung any more. I also asked our QA to test it 
and didn't find any problem. I guess the hard hung may due to 
rmmod/insmod, ifconfig up/down using different fixes so many times and 
that may cause memory corruptions.

Regards,
Joyce
