Subject[096/127] gianfar: Fix crashes on RX path (Was Re: [Bugme-new] [Bug 19692] New: linux-2.6.36-rc5 crash with gianfar ethernet at full line rate traffic)
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------


From: Jarek Poplawski <jarkao2@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 0d1fe1111c667e9c713d7efc7ae468a605f236a4 ]

The rx_recycle queue is global per device but can be accesed by many
napi handlers at the same time, so it needs full skb_queue primitives
(with locking). Otherwise, various crashes caused by broken skbs are
possible.

This patch resolves, at least partly, bugzilla bug 19692. (Because of
some doubts that there could be still something around which is hard
to reproduce my proposal is to leave this bug opened for a month.)

Fixes commit: 0fd56bb5be6455d0d42241e65aed057244665e5e ("gianfar: Add
support for skb recycling")
