Comment 1 Petr Matousek 2011-11-21 14:37:24 UTC
Details (copied from 682066#c0):

The kernel panic occurs if a bridge device is connected with physical NIC and
UDP packets are transmitted via the bridge device.

The kernel panic occurs when all the following conditions consist:
- The kernel version is RHEL6(2.6.32-71.xx.el6).
- The NETIF_F_HW_CSUM of the physical device connected with the bridge device
is available.
- The udp-fragmentation-offload function of the bridge device is available(ON).
- The udp-fragmentation-offload function of the physical NIC is
- IPv6 protocol
- The size of the UDP datagram exceeds MTU. (fragmentation is necessary)

Comment 3 Petr Matousek 2011-11-21 14:41:30 UTC
Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue

Affects: fedora-all [bug 755590]

Comment 5 Petr Matousek 2011-11-21 14:50:22 UTC

This issue did not affect the versions of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 as they did not provide support for UDP Fragmentation Offload (UFO) functionality. This has been addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1465.html, and https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0010.html.
