I was able to reproduce this against 2.6.31.9 + hackings, but it took around
3 hours of 30k connections and intermittent serious memory pressure.

This appears to be the identical place from the previous crash (there were no
ixgbe changes between .7 and .9 as far as I know).

I re-compiled with symbols, and ran gdb against that new ixgbe.ko
file:

(gdb) l *(ixgbe_clean_rx_irq+0xdf)
0x662f is in ixgbe_clean_rx_irq (/home/greearb/git/linux-2.6.dev.31.y/drivers/net/ixgbe/ixgbe_main.c:744).
739				len = le16_to_cpu(rx_desc->wb.upper.length);
740			}
741	
742			cleaned = true;
743			skb = rx_buffer_info->skb;
744			prefetch(skb->data - NET_IP_ALIGN);
745			rx_buffer_info->skb = NULL;
746	
747			if (rx_buffer_info->dma) {
748				pci_unmap_single(pdev, rx_buffer_info->dma,
(gdb)


For the previous crash that started this thread, the listing is this:

(gdb) l *(ixgbe_clean_rx_irq+0xe4)
0x6634 is in ixgbe_clean_rx_irq (/home/greearb/git/linux-2.6.dev.31.y/drivers/net/ixgbe/ixgbe_main.c:744).
739				len = le16_to_cpu(rx_desc->wb.upper.length);
740			}
741	
742			cleaned = true;
743			skb = rx_buffer_info->skb;
744			prefetch(skb->data - NET_IP_ALIGN);
745			rx_buffer_info->skb = NULL;
746	
747			if (rx_buffer_info->dma) {
748				pci_unmap_single(pdev, rx_buffer_info->dma,
