Subject: [Bug 48701] New: Kernel OOPS when transmitting packets using OVS and DSA


           Summary: Kernel OOPS when transmitting packets using OVS and
           Product: Networking
           Version: 2.5
    Kernel Version: 3.6.1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
              Tree: Mainline
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: shemminger at linux-foundation.org
        ReportedBy: barry at grussling.com
                CC: jesse at nicira.com
        Regression: No

When I compiled the kernel (3.6.1 mainline) with distributed switch
architectural (DSA) and OVS (OpenvSwich), I can pass ping traffic fine, but
larger packets cause an oops.

This is on a Freescale 83XX Processor:
# uname -a
Linux PPCTEST 3.6.1+ #1 PREEMPT Thu Oct 11 08:36:35 PDT 2012 ppc GNU/Linux
# Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0x12000007
Faulting instruction address: 0xc008b5ec

Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt
Rebooting in 10 seconds..

This is 100% repeatable.  

I had to do some small kernel tweaks to get the DSA drivers to find the
hardware, so it is possible I broke something, but unlikely since my changes
were not in this area at all.
