Description Adrian Chadd freebsd_committer 2014-09-15 22:07:20 UTC
When RSS is enabled, the receive path assigns the flowid and flowtype from the RX descriptor.

However, it doesn't check to see if the flowid is actually an RSS flowid or whether the field means something else.

It should check a couple of things:

* RSS type should indicate a valid type (eg 0xf == flow director filter match);
* packet type should say it's an L3 packet, not an L2 packet.

Over to maintainers.

I don't think that this one has been resolved yet.
