Subject: PROBLEM: Regression - Can't upload some data in my network - Destination
 unreachable (Fragmentation needed)

Hi all,

A few years ago, I was using Fedora 16 and I was unable to do any HTTP
POST at the place where I work. I also could not upload files via FTP,
send emails or do a 'git push'. So I tried Ubuntu 12.04 (or 12.10, I'm
not quite sure) and it worked perfectly.
Recently I updated it to 14.04 and the same problem I had in Fedora
came back.
I'm not an expert in understanding network packages, but by googling I
read that it could be that the network manager could have blocked the
ICMP MTU dicovery package. I could try to ask the network manager to
find a way to fix it, but I think more people could also have this
problem somewhere in the world.

I asked in Ubuntu's lauchpad, and Christopher M. Penalver guided me to
do a bisection.

I only have this problem at the place where I work and it happens with
any machine with a kernel older than 3.5. most use windows there and
they don't have this problem.

I did a bisection and I also have a wireshark output.

Those attachments are all in lauchpad.

Recently there were some changes in the network, the bug stills
affects some upload services, like: git push, and sending messages in

Let me know what I could do or provide to help to fix this problem.

Bisection results:

3.5.0 is good

c0efc887dcadbdbfe171f028acfab9c7c00e9dde is good.

97bab73f987e2781129cd6f4b6379bf44d808cc6 - gives me a kernel panic
when trying to do an upload of data.

7b34ca2ac7063f4ebf07f85fd75253ed84d5c648 - same problem, kernel panic
when trying to do an upload of data.

The kernel panic goes up to 352e04b9111d608bd89ba7bd8070846d4f97d104

352e04b9111d608bd89ba7bd8070846d4f97d104 - doesn't give me a kernel
panic, but it just hangs when trying to upload data, and this is the
problem that I currently face in the upstream kernel.

to test what versions were good or bad, I tried to do an upload by
doing a 'git push' in a test repository. the bad versions just hanged
when I did 'git push'.

Thank you,

Arthur Helfstein Fragoso
