Subject: [PATCH net] sfc: detach from cb_page in efx_copy_channel()

It's a resource, not a parameter, so we can't copy it into the new
 channel's TX queues, otherwise aliasing will lead to resource-
 management bugs if the channel is subsequently torn down without
 being initialised.

Before the Fixes:-tagged commit there was a similar bug with
 tsoh_page, but I'm not sure it's worth doing another fix for such
 old kernels.

Fixes: e9117e5099ea ("sfc: Firmware-Assisted TSO version 2")
Suggested-by: Derek Shute <>

The Fixes: is in v4.10, so this will want to go to stable for
 4.14 and later.  Note that the recent refactoring has moved the
 code; in the stable trees efx_copy_channel() will be in efx.c
 rather than efx_channels.c.
