SubjectRe: 2.6.25-rc8: FTP transfer errors
From
Date
Even if the patch is not good, the line dst_free(&rt->u.dst); 
when rt is still in tree leads to a crash, but when you do not
do the dst_free, when rt is in tree, then it may have hidden
other bugs, but at least I can keep working.


I never said my patch was good, but it does the minimum to avoid my bug:


if (fn->leaf == NULL) {
bug_8895_clownix_provisional_workaround = 1;
fn->leaf = rt;
atomic_inc(&rt->rt6i_ref);
}
...

ip6_fib.c, line 796:

if (!bug_8895_clownix_provisional_workaround)
dst_free(&rt->u.dst);

That way at least it does not crash.

I cannot provide more than the line and the reason for the crash, I am
one of the numerous brainless users.
