Subject[PATCH 4.19 19/89] sfc: detach from cb_page in efx_copy_channel()
Date
From: Edward Cree <ecree@solarflare.com>

[ Upstream commit 4b1bd9db078f7d5332c8601a2f5bd43cf0458fd4 ]

It's a resource, not a parameter, so we can't copy it into the new
channel's TX queues, otherwise aliasing will lead to resource-
management bugs if the channel is subsequently torn down without
being initialised.

Before the Fixes:-tagged commit there was a similar bug with
tsoh_page, but I'm not sure it's worth doing another fix for such
old kernels.
