SubjectRe: When does Linux drop UDP packets?

Oh, btw, you don't need to strip LKML from replys (or any Cc), unless it
is off topic. LKML is a public forum, and as long as things are on topic,
it is nice to show others the solutions that are found.

BTW, I used ftrace to look into this:

Enable:

CONFIG_FTRACE
CONFIG_FUNCTION_TRACER
CONFIG_FUNCITON_GRAPH_TRACER
CONFIG_DYNAMIC_FTRACE

Compile and boot:

# mount -t debugfs nodev /sys/kernel/debug
# cd /sys/kernel/debug
# echo udp_rcv > set_graph_function
# echo function_graph > current_tracer
# cat trace
and this is what I see:

# tracer: function_graph
#
