[PATCH 4.9 079/172] gianfar: Do not reuse pages from emergency reserve

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Jul 03 2017 - 09:43:40 EST

4.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 69fed99baac186013840ced3524562841296034f ]

A driver using dev_alloc_page() must not reuse a page that had to
use emergency memory reserve.

Otherwise all packets using this page will be immediately dropped,
unless for very specific sockets having SOCK_MEMALLOC bit set.

This issue might be hard to debug, because only a fraction of the RX
ring buffer would suffer from drops.
