Subject: Re: [PATCH net v2] net/sched: cls_flower: allocate mask
 dynamically in fl_change()

From: Ivan Vecera <>

> Recent changes (especially 05cd271fd61a ("cls_flower: Support multiple
> masks per priority")) in the fl_flow_mask structure grow it and its
> current size e.g. on x86_64 with defconfig is 760 bytes and more than
> 1024 bytes with some debug options enabled. Prior the mentioned commit
> its size was 176 bytes (using defconfig on x86_64).
> With regard to this fact it's reasonable to allocate this structure
> dynamically in fl_change() to reduce its stack size.
