    Subject[34-longterm 111/260] gro: Re-fix different skb headrooms
    From: Jarek Poplawski <>

    commit 64289c8e6851bca0e589e064c9a5c9fbd6ae5dd4 upstream.

    The patch: "gro: fix different skb headrooms" in its part:
    "2) allocate a minimal skb for head of frag_list" is buggy. The copied
    skb has p->data set at the ip header at the moment, and skb_gro_offset
    is the length of ip + tcp headers. So, after the change the length of
    mac header is skipped. Later skb_set_mac_header() sets it into the
    NET_SKB_PAD area (if it's long enough) and ip header is misaligned at
    NET_SKB_PAD + NET_IP_ALIGN offset. There is no reason to assume the
    original skb was wrongly allocated, so let's copy it as it was.

    bugzilla :
    fixes commit: 3d3be4333fdf6faa080947b331a6a19bce1a4f57
