SubjectRe: [TEST FIX] Re: SSH Hangs in 2.5.59 and 2.5.55 but not 2.4.x,
Date: Wed, 29 Jan 2003 02:56:41 +0300 (MSK)

Hey! Interesting thing has just happened, it is the first time when I found
the bug formulating a senstence while writing e-mail not while peering
to code. :-)

Congratulations :-)

Shheit, look into tcp_retrans_try_collapse():

if (skb->ip_summed != CHECKSUM_HW) {
memcpy(skb_put(skb, next_skb_size), next_skb->data, nex$ skb->csum = csum_block_add(skb->csum, next_skb->csum, s$ }

WHERE IS skb_put and copy when skb->ip_summed==CHECKSUM_HW??!!

So, the fix is move of memcpy() line out of if clause.

Indeed, this bug exists in 2.4 as well of course.

This bug is 2.4.3 vintage :-) It got added as part of initial
zerocopy merge in fact.

Here is 2.4.x version of fix, 2.5.x is identicaly sans some line
number differences. I will push this all to Linus/Marcelo.

BTW, Alexey, please please explain to me how that trick made
by tcp_trim_head() works. :-) I am talking about how it is
setting ip_summed to CHECKSUM_HARDWARE blindly and not even
bothering to set skb->csum correctly.
