Subject: [PATCH net v2] tun: correct header offsets in napi frags mode

From: Willem de Bruijn <>

Tun in IFF_NAPI_FRAGS mode calls napi_gro_frags. Unlike netif_rx and
netif_gro_receive, this expects skb->data to point to the mac layer.

But skb_probe_transport_header, __skb_get_hash_symmetric, and
xdp_do_generic in tun_get_user need skb->data to point to the network
header. Flow dissection also needs skb->protocol set, so
eth_type_trans has to be called.

Ensure the link layer header lies in linear as eth_type_trans pulls
ETH_HLEN. Then take the same code paths for frags as for not frags.
Push the link layer header back just before calling napi_gro_frags.

By pulling up to ETH_HLEN from frag0 into linear, this disables the
frag0 optimization in the special case when IFF_NAPI_FRAGS is used
with zero length iov[0] (and thus empty skb->linear).

Fixes: 90e33d459407 ("tun: enable napi_gro_frags() for TUN/TAP driver")
