ath9k: Fix possible double free of PAPRD skb's
This patch reverts the following commit ath9k: remove bfs_paprd_timestamp from struct ath_buf_state Under high interference/noisy environment conditions where PAPRD frames fails heavily introduces a possibility of double freeing skb's and causes kernel panic after some time.This patch reverts back to the original approach of using paprd_timestamp before freeing the PAPRD frame skb's [ 194.193705] Pid: 0, comm: swapper Tainted: G D WC 2.6.35-22-generic #33-Ubuntu [ 194.193712] Call Trace: [ 194.193722] [<c05c6468>] ? printk+0x2d/0x35 [ 194.193732] [<c05c63c3>] panic+0x5a/0xd2 [ 194.193741] [<c05ca3ed>] oops_end+0xcd/0xd0 [ 194.193750] [<c0105f74>] die+0x54/0x80 [ 194.193758] [<c05c9a16>] do_trap+0x96/0xc0 [ 194.193837] [<c0103fb0>] ? do_invalid_op+0x0/0xa0 [ 194.193846] [<c010403b>] do_invalid_op+0x8b/0xa0 [ 194.193856] [<c020bd4c>] ? kfree+0xec/0xf0 [ 194.193866] [<c012ce18>] ? default_spin_lock_flags+0x8/0x10 [ 194.193877] [<c01de47a>] ? free_one_page+0x12a/0x2d0 [ 194.193888] [<c01e04dc>] ? __free_pages+0x1c/0x40 [ 194.193897] [<c05c97a7>] error_code+0x73/0x78 [ 194.193906] [<c020bd4c>] ? kfree+0xec/0xf0 [ 194.193915] [<c04ecdd0>] ? skb_release_data+0x70/0xa0 [ 194.193924] [<c04ecdd0>] skb_release_data+0x70/0xa0 [ 194.193933] [<c04ec997>] __kfree_skb+0x17/0x90 [ 194.193941] [<c04eca31>] consume_skb+0x21/0x40 [ 194.193964] [<f85e0b70>] ieee80211_tx_status+0x760/0x860 [mac80211] [ 194.193979] [<f85caddf>] ath_tx_complete_buf+0x1bf/0x2c0 [ath9k] [ 194.193988] [<c05c8b9f>] ? _raw_spin_lock_irqsave+0x2f/0x50 [ 194.193997] [<c04ec40e>] ? skb_queue_tail+0x3e/0x50 [ 194.194010] [<f85cc803>] ath_tx_complete_aggr+0x823/0x940 [ath9k] [ 194.194021] [<c0108a28>] ? sched_clock+0x8/0x10 [ 194.194030] [<c016bf14>] ? sched_clock_local+0xa4/0x180 [ 194.194040] [<c0139f57>] ? enqueue_sleeper+0x1e7/0x2b0 [ 194.194051] [<c013a194>] ? enqueue_entity+0x174/0x200 [ 194.194064] [<f85ce83d>] ath_tx_edma_tasklet+0x2bd/0x3b0 [ath9k] [ 194.194074] [<c05c8b9f>] ? _raw_spin_lock_irqsave+0x2f/0x50 [ 194.194088] [<f85c7b9f>] ath9k_tasklet+0x9f/0x190 [ath9k] [ 194.194097] [<c01505d7>] tasklet_action+0xa7/0xb0 [ 194.194107] [<c015127c>] __do_softirq+0x9c/0x1b0 [ 194.194117] [<c01a7f64>] ? irq_to_desc+0x14/0x20 [ 194.194126] [<c0124fc4>] ? ack_apic_level+0x64/0x1f0 [ 194.194136] [<c01513d5>] do_softirq+0x45/0x50 [ 194.194145] [<c0151545>] irq_exit+0x65/0x70 [ 194.194153] [<c05cf665>] do_IRQ+0x55/0xc0 [ 194.194162] [<c016a6c7>] ? hrtimer_start+0x27/0x30 [ 194.194171] [<c0103630>] common_interrupt+0x30/0x38 [ 194.194181] [<c012c21a>] ? native_safe_halt+0xa/0x10 [ 194.194268] [<c010a2f9>] default_idle+0x49/0xb0 [ 194.194277] [<c0101fcc>] cpu_idle+0x8c/0xd0 [ 194.194286] [<c05b2431>] rest_init+0x71/0x80 [ 194.194295] [<c081981a>] start_kernel+0x36e/0x374 [ 194.194305] [<c08199dd>] ? pass_all_bootoptions+0x0/0xa [ 194.194314] [<c08190d7>] i386_start_kernel+0xd7/0xdf [ 194.194364] panic occurred, switching back to text console Signed-off-by: Mohammed Shafi Shajakhan <mshajakhan@atheros.com> Signed-off-by: John W.
