Default Bug#626284: Bogus UDP Fragmentation Offload packet generation

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-31
Severity: important


The new UFO software fallback path fails under certain conditions with NFS
and causes partial connectivity loss due to generation of UFO packets smaller
than the MTU, which are then discarded by the software fallback path.

This bug is present in all longterm 2.6.32.x kernels up to and including
2.6.32.39 and in all Debian 2.6.32 kernels up to and including 2.6.32-31.

It was fixed upstream in 2.6.32.40. Upstream commit ID is
26cde9f7e2747b6d254b704594eed87ab959afa5.

How to reproduce: copy a large file to an NFS mount with UFO enabled and
going through the software fallback path, e.g. on a KVM guest with virtio-net
and qdev device syntax:

-device virtio-net-pci,netdev=tap1,mac=ab:cd:ef:01:23:45
-netdev type=tap,id=tap1,ifname=tap1

All NFS mounts immediately stall and processes go into D state,
stuck on nfs_wait_bit_uninterruptible. There is no further communication
between the client and the server.

Yes, I noticed. We'll apply the changes from 2.6.32.40 shortly.
