thunder: chip errata w/ multiple CQEs for a TSO packet
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in linux source package in Xenial:
With small segment sizes, it is possible for the driver to free an SKB before
transmitting it, potentially resulting in a crash.
The test case for this is to use a small MTU (200) and mount an NFS exported
directory. Create several (~4) 1M files w/ dd, then copy them locally. However,
I have not been able to trigger the crash myself.
Fix is upstream, so regressions will have upstream support. Fix is limited to
a driver that is only applicable to the Cavium Thunder-X SoC, so risk is
negligible to other platforms.
