Subject: Re: [PATCH net] drivers/net/wan/lapbether: Set network_header
 before transmitting

From: Xie He <>
Date: Tue, 25 Aug 2020 20:03:53 -0700

> Set the skb's network_header before it is passed to the underlying
> Ethernet device for transmission.
> This patch fixes the following issue:
> When we use this driver with AF_PACKET sockets, there would be error
> messages of:
>    protocol 0805 is buggy, dev (Ethernet interface name)
> printed in the system "dmesg" log.
> This is because skbs passed down to the Ethernet device for transmission
> don't have their network_header properly set, and the dev_queue_xmit_nit
> function in net/core/dev.c complains about this.
> Reason of setting the network_header to this place (at the end of the
> Ethernet header, and at the beginning of the Ethernet payload):
> Because when this driver receives an skb from the Ethernet device, the
> network_header is also set at this place.
