Subject: Re: [PATCH v6 4/4] net: moxa: continue loop on skb allocation

From: Jonas Jensen <>
Date: Mon, 25 Aug 2014 16:22:40 +0200

> If netdev_alloc_skb_ip_align() fails, subsequent code will
> try to dereference an invalid pointer.
> Continue to next descriptor on error.
> While we're at it,
> 1. eliminate the chance of an endless loop, replace the main
>    loop with while(rx < budget)
> 2. use napi_complete() and remove the explicit napi_gro_flush()
