Subject[PATCH 4.9 03/93] net/mlx5e: Fix wrong CQE decompression
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Tariq Toukan <>

[ Upstream commit 36154be40a28e4afaa0416da2681d80b7e2ca319 ]

In cqe compression with striding RQ, the decompression of the CQE field
wqe_counter was done with a wrong wraparound value.
This caused handling cqes with a wrong pointer to wqe (rx descriptor)
and creating SKBs with wrong data, pointing to wrong (and already consumed)

The meaning of the CQE field wqe_counter in striding RQ holds the
stride index instead of the WQE index. Hence, when decompressing
a CQE, wqe_counter should have wrapped-around the number of strides
in a single multi-packet WQE.

We dropped this wrap-around mask at all in CQE decompression of striding
RQ. It is not needed as in such cases the CQE compression session would
break because of different value of wqe_id field, starting a new
compression session.

ethtool -K ethxx lro off/on
ethtool --set-priv-flags ethxx rx_cqe_compress on
super_netperf 16 {ipv4,ipv6} -t TCP_STREAM -m 50 -D
verified no csum errors and no page refcount issues.
