Subject: Re: [PATCH net] macvlan: allow to enqueue broadcast pkt on virtual

From: Nicolas Dichtel <>
Date: Wed, 17 Sep 2014 10:08:08 +0200

> Since commit 412ca1550cbe ("macvlan: Move broadcasts into a work queue"), the
> driver uses tx_queue_len of the master device as the limit of packets enqueuing.
> Problem is that virtual drivers have this value set to 0, thus all broadcast
> packets were rejected.
> Because tx_queue_len was arbitrarily chosen, I replace it with a static limit
> of 1000 (also arbitrarily chosen).
