Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 3.18 16/40] s390/qeth: no ETH header for outbound AF_IUCV
From: Julian Wiedmann <>

[ Upstream commit acd9776b5c45ef02d1a210969a6fcc058afb76e3 ]

With AF_IUCV traffic, the skb passed to hard_start_xmit() has a 14 byte
slot at skb->data, intended for an ETH header. qeth_l3_fill_af_iucv_hdr()
fills this ETH header... and then immediately moves it to the
skb's headroom, where it disappears and is never seen again.

But it's still possible for us to return NETDEV_TX_BUSY after the skb has
been modified. Since we didn't get a private copy of the skb, the next
time the skb is delivered to hard_start_xmit() it no longer has the
expected layout (we moved the ETH header to the headroom, so skb->data
now starts at the IUCV_TRANS header). So when qeth_l3_fill_af_iucv_hdr()
does another round of rebuilding, the resulting qeth header ends up
all wrong. On transmission, the buffer is then rejected by
the HiperSockets device with SBALF15 = x'04'.
When this error is passed back to af_iucv as TX_NOTIFY_UNREACHABLE, it
tears down the offending socket.

As the ETH header for AF_IUCV serves no purpose, just align the code to
what we do for IP traffic on L3 HiperSockets: keep the ETH header at
skb->data, and pass down data_offset = ETH_HLEN to qeth_fill_buffer().
When mapping the payload into the SBAL elements, the ETH header is then
stripped off. This avoids the skb manipulations in
qeth_l3_fill_af_iucv_hdr(), and any buffer re-entering hard_start_xmit()
after NETDEV_TX_BUSY is now processed properly.
