    SubjectNS83820 2.6.0-test5 driver seems unstable on IA64

    I'm having some problems with the NS83820 driver on Itanium-1.

    1. I see many many `unaligned accesses' when the IP header is
    accessed (ip_input.c:410 and 423)
    It looks as if the IP header is two byte aligned, when it ought to be
    4-byte aligned.

    The error message is, e.g.,
    kernel unaligned access to 0xe000000128d8881e, ip=0xe0000000047ba2d1

    0xe0000000047ba2d1 is
    if (iph->ihl < 5 || iph->version != 4)
    goto inhdr_error;

    0xe000000128d8881e is what's calculated as &iph->ihl

    The obvious approach of realigning the SKB by 2 bytes seems not to

    Any ideas?

    You are lost in a maze of BitKeeper repositories, all slightly different.
