[14/68] bonding/vlan: Avoid mangled NAs on slaves without VLAN tag insertion

From: Greg KH

2.6.32-longterm review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Ben Hutchings <bhutchings@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

This is related to commit f88a4a9b65a6f3422b81be995535d0e69df11bb8
upstream, but the bug cannot be properly fixed without the other
changes to VLAN tagging in 2.6.37.

bond_na_send() attempts to insert a VLAN tag in between building and
sending packets of the respective formats. If the slave does not
implement hardware VLAN tag insertion then vlan_put_tag() will mangle
the network-layer header because the Ethernet header is not present at
this point (unlike in bond_arp_send()).
