Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> Subject: CVE request: kernel: igb panics when receiving tag vlan packet If igb's SR-IOV and promiscuous mode are enabled and the interface receives a tag VLAN packet, this will result in a null pointer dereference. To fix this, we will backport upstream commit 31b24b95 to ensure that vlan_gro_receive is only used if vlans have been registered to the adapter structure. Reference: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=660188 https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15582 Upstream commit: http://git.kernel.org/linus/31b24b95 Thanks, Eugene
