Subject[ 033/187] be2net: fix a race in be_xmit()
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------


From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

[ Upstream commit cd8f76c0a0c6fce0b2cf23c9bd0123f91453f46d ]

As soon as hardware is notified of a transmit, we no longer can assume
skb can be dereferenced, as TX completion might have freed the packet.
