parentbnx2x: fix panic when TX ring is full (diff)
net: remove skb_orphan_try()
Orphaning skb in dev_hard_start_xmit() makes bonding behavior unfriendly for applications sending big UDP bursts : Once packets pass the bonding device and come to real device, they might hit a full qdisc and be dropped. Without orphaning, the sender is automatically throttled because sk->sk_wmemalloc reaches sk->sk_sndbuf (assuming sk_sndbuf is not too big) We could try to defer the orphaning adding another test in dev_hard_start_xmit(), but all this seems of little gain, now that BQL tends to make packets more likely to be parked in Qdisc queues instead of NIC TX ring, in cases where performance matters.
