Hmmm, should have been fixed by:

commit d1c76af9e2434fac3add561e26c61b06503de986
Author: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
Date:   Mon Mar 16 10:50:02 2009 -0700

    GRO: Move netpoll checks to correct location
    

...

Nevermind, the backtrace signature is different for this
one.

Good spotting, thanks Alex.

I'll wait for testing and a final version via Jeff.

Actually I think this may be a bug in igb_receive_skb.  My guess would be that promiscuous mode is somehow being enabled which is turning off the vlan filtering and as a result we are probably picking up vlan traffic when we have no vlans registered.  The null pointer in that case would be adapter->vlgrp.

The patch below should address it.  However I suspect it will get mangled by our email system here so I don't believe it will apply.  I have also sent a copy of to Jeff to pull into his tree for testing and submission.

Thanks,

Alex

This change makes it so that vlan_gro_receive is only used if vlans have been
registered to the adapter structure.  Previously we were just sending all vlan
tagged frames in via this function but this results in a null pointer
dereference when vlans are not registered.
