Subject: [PATCH 1/2] net/tg3: Fix kernel crash
Date: Wed, 24 Jul 2013 17:25:08 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

While EEH error happens, we might not have network device instance
(struct net_device) yet. So we can't access the instance safely and
check its link state, which causes kernel crash. The patch fixes it.

EEH: Frozen PE#2 on PHB#3 detected
EEH: This PCI device has failed 1 times in the last hour
EEH: Notify device drivers to shutdown
(NULL net_device): PCI I/O error detected
Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0x00000048
Faulting instruction address: 0xd00000001c9387a8
Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1]
