Description Gerardo Exequiel Pozzi 2018-02-06 19:14:12 UTC
I hist similar issue [#1] like with ath9k (fixed now) but with ath9k_htc use in my "TP-LINK TL-WN722N V1.0 (Qualcomm Atheros AR9271)"

Interface was in monitor mode (But I guess, this does not care).

Comment 1 WhoAmEye 2019-06-15 01:54:39 UTC
The trace comes from WARN_ON in kernel core file mac80211/rx.c 
From kernel version 4.14
static struct sk_buff *
ieee80211_rx_monitor(struct ieee80211_local *local, struct sk_buff *origskb,
                     struct ieee80211_rate *rate)
{

..
..

       if (ieee80211_hw_check(&local->hw, RX_INCLUDES_FCS)) {
                if (unlikely(origskb->len <= FCS_LEN)) {
                        /* driver bug */
                        WARN_ON(1);
                        dev_kfree_skb(origskb);
                        return NULL;
                }
                present_fcs_len = FCS_LEN;
        }

    
}

Warning trace is hit when skblen is less than 4(FCS_LEN) bytes.
In the latest kernel 5.2 , I see checks around this code, maybe the problem might be fixed in latest. Please verify in latest kernel.

Thanks.

I can confirm this on ath9k_htc and several other drivers (rt2800usb, mt76, RTL8821AE):

Comment 4 Masashi Honma 2019-11-20 22:27:20 UTC
Sorry the patch is now just merged on wireless-testing branch.
I will notify when it is merged on Linux kernel upstream.
