Subject[PATCH 3.18 30/47] bnx2x: Align RX buffers
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Scott Wood <>

[ Upstream commit 9b70de6d0266888b3743f03802502e43131043c8 ]

The bnx2x driver is not providing proper alignment on the receive buffers it
passes to build_skb(), causing skb_shared_info to be misaligned.
skb_shared_info contains an atomic, and while PPC normally supports
unaligned accesses, it does not support unaligned atomics.

Aligning the size of rx buffers will ensure that page_frag_alloc() returns
aligned addresses.

This can be reproduced on PPC by setting the network MTU to 1450 (or other
non-multiple-of-4) and then generating sufficient inbound network traffic
(one or two large "wget"s usually does it), producing the following oops:

Unable to handle kernel paging request for unaligned access at address 0xc00000ffc43af656
Faulting instruction address: 0xc00000000080ef8c
Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 7 [#1]
