Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/3] xen-netback: fix multiple extra info handling
Date: Thu, 10 Mar 2016 12:30:25 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1457613028-10381-1-git-send-email-paul.durrant__40128.3852909275$1457613717$gmane$org@citrix.com> (raw)

If a frontend passes multiple extra info fragments to netback on the guest
transmit side, because xen-netback does not account for this properly, only
a single ack response will be sent. This will eventually cause processing
of the shared ring to wedge.

This series re-imports the canonical netif.h from Xen, where the ring
protocol documentation has been updated, fixes this issue in xen-netback
and also adds a patch to reduce log spam.
