Description conny seidel 2009-09-04 15:46:53 UTC
Description of problem:
DMA bug in RTL8139 network driver, observed by DMA debug facility
During network transfers using a RTL8139 NIC, the DMA debug API
discovers illegal frees and dumps this in dmesg

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
OS version    : FC12-alpha
Kernel version: 2.6.31-

How reproducible:
- use QEMU (Xen HVM, KVM, or pure userspace emulation show all the bug)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. qemu -net nic,model=rtl8139 -net user -hda fedora12_rc.img
2. do some network load (copying files over ssh from guest to host,
   ping flood from guest to host)
3. observe debug message in dmesg

Actual results:
