This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves
the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the
results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-
trusty' to 'verification-done-trusty'. If the problem still exists,
change the tag 'verification-needed-trusty' to 'verification-failed-
trusty'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will
be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how
to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

Title:
  ixgbe: Kernel Oops when attempting to disable spoofchk in a non-
  existing VF

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in linux source package in Trusty:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  [Impact]
  Trusty 3.13 kernel Oops due to ixgbe driver failing to check non-existing VF

  [Description]
  In the current Trusty kernel, when the ixgbe driver tries to enable or 
disable spoofchk for a non-existing VF, it causes a kernel oops. This is due to 
a missing check in ixgbe_ndo_set_vf_spoofchk() before dereferencing the VF. 
There is an upstream commit to fix this issue (600a507ddcb99 ixgbe: check for 
vfs outside of sriov_num_vfs before dereference), but it needs to be 
cherry-picked into 3.13 for Trusty.

  [Fix]
  The fix is to check if the requested VF exists before dereferencing it in the 
driver. Upstream commit 600a507ddcb99 introduced this check, and it's a clean 
cherry pick into the latest Trusty kernel.

  [Regression Potential]
  The regression potential is low, since the fix is a simple check to confirm 
the VF exists before doing any operations. This check is already implemented in 
other functions of the ixgbe driver, and only the spoofchk function is missing 
it. Nonetheless, the patch was tested in an impacted system and confirmed to 
resolve the kernel oops without further problems.
