SubjectRe: WARNING: at net/ipv4/tcp_input.c:3418
From
Thanks for the detailed reports.

I am working on this, and have a theory and potential fix for a bug
that relates to MSS changes and broken packet counts for SACKed skbs,
which could conceivably lead to the warnings you're seeing. However,
the bug that I am looking at is quite old. (Though it's possible it's
being tickled more now, due to some interaction with recent changes.)

To help provide more data, would you be able to run with 3.3.0-rc3 for
a while (hopefully with roughly the same flavor of workload) and see
if you run into the same problems?
