[ovs-dev] [PATCH net 2/5] openvswitch: Fix kernel panic on ovs_flow_free

Jesse Gross jesse at nicira.com
Wed Feb 5 06:40:58 UTC 2014


From: Andy Zhou <azhou at nicira.com>

Both mega flow mask's reference counter and per flow table mask list
should only be accessed when holding ovs_mutex() lock. However
this is not true with ovs_flow_table_flush(). The patch fixes this bug.
