error log

bridging between Ethernet and wifi driver in AP mode triggers BUG_ON while in rx path.

Steps to Reproduce
iw wlan0 set type __ap
ifconfig eth0
ifconfgi wlan0
brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 wlan0
brctl addif br0 eth0
ifconfig br0 up

traffic from Wifi-Client->wlan0 -> eth0 -> Ether-Client

This is regression in sense that there wasn't such crush int kernels 2.6.29 as far as I remember.

What exactly was the last good kernel?
Comment 2 Johannes Berg 2010-12-22 13:12:30 UTC
I believe what would've broken it is 2f301227, but that just changed iwlwifi and shouldn't have had this effect. That was in 2.6.33.
