I'm wondering if anyone could help me out with problem I have in alloc_skb().
My problem is that, kernel dies with "alloc_skb called nonatomically
from interrupt c00ba718" message. After browsing mailing list, I think
its to do with not providing it with enough locks prior.
Question is, what kind of lock should I be providing ?
Since I have no clue as to which lock does what, I really need some
good advise as to where to start looking.
Could someone tell me the inside story on this ?
