Hello Dave,

after a request from Matthias Fuchs regarding the status of this patch in
2.6.30-stable, i discovered a problem with the commit in 2.6.30-stable:

Patch discussion/history: http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/28993/

The commit in mainline is correct:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=d55d87fdff8252d0e2f7c28c2d443aee17e9d70f

        atomic_add(skb->truesize, &sk->sk_rmem_alloc);


The skb_orphan(skb) in skb_set_owner_w() is missing here.

Is there any chance to fix that in 2.6.30-stable?

Thanks,
Oliver
