The ixgbe driver currently generates a NULL pointer dereference with
some machine (online cpus < 63). This is due to the fact that the
maximum value of num_xdp_queues is nr_cpu_ids. Code is in

That's a good catch, but we should fix set channels callback so that it
will not allow a setting of queues to be higher than the

Please also include the tree in the patch subject that you're directing
the patch to.

Ok, Besides it, I will add more code in "ixgbe_set_channels":
/* verify the number of channels does not exceed num_online_cpus */
if (count > num_online_cpus())
return -EINVAL;
If user want set queues num to be higher than the num_online_cpus(),
return error(-EINVAL).

What do you think?

Yes, in general you can refer to
drivers/net/ethernet/intel/ice/ice_ethtool.c and in particular:

* ice_get_max_rxq - return the maximum number of Rx queues for in a PF
* @pf: PF structure
static int ice_get_max_rxq(struct ice_pf *pf)
return min3(pf->num_lan_msix, (u16)num_online_cpus(),

Ok, refer to drivers/net/ethernet/intel/ice/ice_ethtool.c:

I think, "ixgbe_max_channels":

return max_combined;

Instead of

return min_t(int, max_combined, num_online_cpus());

I'd be also thankful if you Cc me on Intel XDP related patches.

Ok, of course.

Here's how the problem repeats itself:
Some machine (online cpus < 63), And user set num_queues to 63 through
ethtool. Code is in the "ixgbe_set_channels",
adapter->ring_feature[RING_F_FDIR].limit = count;
It becames 63.
When user use xdp, "ixgbe_set_rss_queues" will set queues num.
adapter->num_rx_queues = rss_i;
adapter->num_tx_queues = rss_i;
adapter->num_xdp_queues = ixgbe_xdp_queues(adapter);
And rss_i's value is from
f = &adapter->ring_feature[RING_F_FDIR];
rss_i = f->indices = f->limit;
So "num_rx_queues" > "num_xdp_queues", when run to "ixgbe_xdp_setup",
for (i = 0; i < adapter->num_rx_queues; i++)
if (adapter->xdp_ring[i]->xsk_umem)
lead to panic.
