Subject: Re: [Patch net] ipv4: use the right lock for ping_group_range

From: Cong Wang <>

> This reverts commit a681574c99be23e4d20b769bf0e543239c364af5
> ("ipv4: disable BH in set_ping_group_range()") because we never
> read ping_group_range in BH context (unlike local_port_range).
> Then, since we already have a lock for ping_group_range, those
