Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next] dp83640: Fix length check for event timestamp
 status messages

From: Christian Riesch <>
Date: Thu, 21 Aug 2014 15:17:04 +0200

> Event timestamp status messages have a variable length, ranging from
> 1 to 5 words (16 bit words). The current code however requires
> a minimum message length of sizeof(*phy_txts). In most cases this
> condition is fulfilled due to padding bytes. However, if several events
> are signaled in a single message, padding bytes may not be present.
> For short event timestamp status messages, the length check will fail,
> and the event timestamp will be dropped.
