Subject[PATCH 3.18 066/120] e1000: check on netif_running() before calling e1000_up()
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Bo Chen <chenbo@pdx.edu>

[ Upstream commit cf1acec008f8d7761aa3fd7c4bca7e17b2d2512d ]

When the device is not up, the call to 'e1000_up()' from the error handling path
of 'e1000_set_ringparam()' causes a kernel oops with a null-pointer
dereference. The null-pointer dereference is triggered in function
'e1000_alloc_rx_buffers()' at line 'buffer_info = &rx_ring->buffer_info[i]'.

This bug was reported by COD, a tool for testing kernel module binaries I am
building. This bug was also detected by KFI from Dr. Kai Cong.

This patch fixes the bug by checking on 'netif_running()' before calling
'e1000_up()' in 'e1000_set_ringparam()'.
