Subject[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 046/133] igb: Fix oops caused by missing queue pairing
3.16.7-ckt18 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Shota Suzuki <>

commit 72ddef0506da852dc82f078f37ced8ef4d74a2bf upstream.

When initializing igb driver (e.g. 82576, I350), IGB_FLAG_QUEUE_PAIRS is
set if adapter->rss_queues exceeds half of max_rss_queues in
On the other hand, IGB_FLAG_QUEUE_PAIRS is not set even if the number of
queues exceeds half of max_combined in igb_set_channels() when changing
the number of queues by "ethtool -L".
In this case, if numvecs is larger than MAX_MSIX_ENTRIES (10), the size
of adapter->msix_entries[], an overflow can occur in
igb_set_interrupt_capability(), which in turn leads to an oops.

Fix this problem as follows:
- When changing the number of queues by "ethtool -L", set
IGB_FLAG_QUEUE_PAIRS in the same way as initializing igb driver.
- When increasing the size of q_vector, reallocate it appropriately.
(With IGB_FLAG_QUEUE_PAIRS set, the size of q_vector gets larger.)

Another possible way to fix this problem is to cap the queues at its
initial number, which is the number of the initial online cpus. But this
is not the optimal way because we cannot increase queues when another
cpu becomes online.

Note that before commit cd14ef54d25b ("igb: Change to use statically
allocated array for MSIx entries"), this problem did not cause oops
but just made the number of queues become 1 because of entering msi_only
mode in igb_set_interrupt_capability().
