SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] net/mlx5e: avoid stack overflow in mlx5e_open_channels
From: Arnd Bergmann <>
Date: Tue, 26 Apr 2016 17:52:33 +0200

> struct mlx5e_channel_param is a large structure that is allocated

> it has grown beyond the warning size for the maximum stack

> mellanox/mlx5/core/en_main.c:1325:1: error: the frame size of 1072 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes [-Werror=frame-larger-than=]
> The function is already using dynamic allocation and is not in
> a fast path, so the easiest workaround is to use another kzalloc

> v2: move allocation back into caller, as suggested by Saeed Mahameed

Applied, thanks Arnd.
