Subject[patch 03/83] cxgb3: Fix kernel crash caused by uninitialized l2t_entry.arpq
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Roland Dreier <>

[ Upstream commit 6d329af9967e7ab3f4a3d7f1e8ef87539c3a069f ]

Commit 147e70e6 ("cxgb3: Use SKB list interfaces instead of home-grown
implementation.") causes a crash in t3_l2t_send_slow() when an iWARP
connection request is received. This is because the new l2t_entry.arpq
skb queue is never initialized, and therefore trying to add an skb to
it causes a NULL dereference. With the old code there was no need to
initialize the queues because the l2t_entry structures were zeroed,
and the code used NULL to mean empty.

Fix this by adding __skb_queue_head_init() when all the l2t_entry
structures get allocated.
