[Bridge] [PATCH 1/3] net: maintain namespace isolation between vlan and real device

Arnd Bergmann arnd at arndb.de
Sat Jan 30 14:23:03 PST 2010


In the vlan and macvlan drivers, the start_xmit function forwards
data to the dev_queue_xmit function for another device, which may
potentially belong to a different namespace.

To make sure that classification stays within a single namespace,
this resets the potentially critical fields.
