I'm replying to my own post, since I discovered what was causing the
kernel oops with the au1000_eth.c driver. The attached patch fixes 3
- The build problem with extern inline str2eaddr. I just made it
non-inline, although I'm not sure if this is the best way to resolve the
- At the end of mii_probe(): aup->mii is checked to indicate whether an
ethernet device was found or not, this variable will actually always be
set, which leads to a crash when aup->mii->chip_info->name is accessed
in code following it (in the case where no device is detected).
aup->mii->chip_info seems like a better test, although I'm not positive
on that one.
- In au1000_probe() 'sizeof(dev->dev_addr)' was being used in memcpy
when copying ethernet MAC addresses. This size is currently 32 which is
larger than the 6 byte buffers being used in the copies, leading to
If I should be sending this to the author of the driver or some other
location, please let me know. Best regards,
