Yuval Mintz - April 22, 2013, 12:53 p.m.
In scenarios in which a previous driver was removed without proper cleanup
(e.g., kdump), it is possible for the chip to generate an interrupt without
any apparent reason once interrupts are requested.

Due to an erroneous initialization of resources, some of the bnx2x structs
which are required for interrupt handling are initialized only after an
interface's interrupt is requested from the OS.

As a result, once such a spurious interrupt occurs, it will cause a NULL
pointer dereference - the driver will access those structs in its interrupt
handling routine.

This patch change the interrupt request scheme so that bnx2x would only
request interrupts from the kernel after it has finished initializing
all the inner structs required for interrupt handling.

Hi Dave,

This patch follows the previously rejected `bnx2x: handle spurious interrupts'.

After verifying that by re-arranging the order by which interrupts' resource
were allocated and requested, we could no longer re-produce the Spurious
interrupt issue, we've dropped the spurious flag.

Please consider applying this patch to `net'.

Thanks,
Yuval Mintz

I told you :-)

Applied, thanks.
