    Subject[patch 127/149] ucc_geth: Fix empty TX queue processing
    2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Anton Vorontsov <>

    commit 7583605b6d29f1f7f6fc505b883328089f3485ad upstream.

    Following oops was seen with the ucc_geth driver:

    Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0x00000058
    Faulting instruction address: 0xc024f2fc
    Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1]
    NIP [c024f2fc] skb_recycle_check+0x14/0x100
    LR [e30aa0a4] ucc_geth_poll+0xd8/0x4e0 [ucc_geth_driver]
    Call Trace:
    [df857d50] [c000b03c] __ipipe_grab_irq+0x3c/0xa4 (unreliable)
    [df857d60] [e30aa0a4] ucc_geth_poll+0xd8/0x4e0 [ucc_geth_driver]
    [df857dd0] [c0258cf8] net_rx_action+0xf8/0x1b8
    [df857e10] [c0032a38] __do_softirq+0xb8/0x13c
    [df857e60] [c00065cc] do_softirq+0xa0/0xac

    This is because ucc_geth_tx() tries to process an empty queue when
    queues are logically stopped. Stopping the queues doesn't disable
    polling, and since nowadays ucc_geth_tx() is actually called from
    the polling routine, the oops above might pop up.

    Fix this by removing 'netif_queue_stopped() == 0' check.
