Hi again,

Just had a second look, and unless I miss something...

Plamen, could you test this patch, too? (Without removing the previous
one.)

Thanks,
Jarek P.

[PATCH] gro: Re-fix different skb headrooms

The patch: "gro: fix different skb headrooms" in its part:
"2) allocate a minimal skb for head of frag_list" is buggy. The copied
skb has p->data set at the ip header at the moment, and skb_gro_offset
is the length of ip + tcp headers. So, after the change the length of
mac header is skipped. Later skb_set_mac_header() sets it into the
NET_SKB_PAD area (if it's long enough) and ip header is misaligned at
NET_SKB_PAD + NET_IP_ALIGN offset. There is no reason to assume the
original skb was wrongly allocated, so let's copy it as it was.

bugzilla : https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16626
fixes commit: 3d3be4333fdf6faa080947b331a6a19bce1a4f57
