SubjectRe: [PATCH net] net: dsa: fix flow dissection on Tx path
From: Alexander Lobakin <>

> Commit 43e665287f93 ("net-next: dsa: fix flow dissection") added an
> ability to override protocol and network offset during flow dissection
> for DSA-enabled devices (i.e. controllers shipped as switch CPU ports)
> in order to fix skb hashing for RPS on Rx path.
> However, skb_hash() and added part of code can be invoked not only on
> Rx, but also on Tx path if we have a multi-queued device and:
> - kernel is running on UP system or
> - XPS is not configured.
> The call stack in this two cases will be like: dev_queue_xmit() ->
> __dev_queue_xmit() -> netdev_core_pick_tx() -> netdev_pick_tx() ->
> skb_tx_hash() -> skb_get_hash().
> The problem is that skbs queued for Tx have both network offset and
> correct protocol already set up even after inserting a CPU tag by DSA
> tagger, so calling tag_ops->flow_dissect() on this path actually only
> breaks flow dissection and hashing.
> This can be observed by adding debug prints just before and right after
> tag_ops->flow_dissect() call to the related block of code:
> In order to fix that we can add the check 'proto == htons(ETH_P_XDSA)'
> to prevent code from calling tag_ops->flow_dissect() on Tx.
> I also decided to initialize 'offset' variable so tagger callbacks can
> now safely leave it untouched without provoking a chaos.

Applied and queued up for -stable.
