SubjectRe: 3.3.0-rc5: OOps in dql_completed (Broadcom tg3 driver)
Hi Christoph, Eric,

Looks like we're hitting BUG_ON(count > dql->num_queued -
dql->num_completed). This is indicative of mis-accounting occurring
between netdev_sent_queue and netdev_completed_queue. I don't
immediately see how this could happen here in the tg3_tso_bug path,
this is still using the same calls to transmit and complete as other
paths. I suppose it's possible that skb_gso_segment is somehow
munging skb->len in segments.

I'll try to reproduce this.

I'm not sure what you mean Eric. It should be okay to exceed the BQL
limit up to the point that num_queued rolls over (probably should be a
BUG_ON for that). This is a much greater number than could ever be
queued to tg3.
