--- Comment #20 from Franck Rousseau <***@imag.fr> ---
(In reply to commit-hook from comment #19)
As mentioned in comment #9 above, this patch breaks ppp, I get this when trying
to re-open a second connection, this is the stage at which the crash occured
PPp ON localhost> Warning: iface add: ioctl(SIOCAIFADDR, 192.168.0.2 ->
192.168.0.1): File exists
Error: ipcp_InterfaceUp: unable to set ip address
Also, the patch in attachment #199450 does not fix this specific problem, we
still crash the kernel with the procedure described earlier in comment #12. As
I said, I could narrow down the cause and find a fix for our use case, by using
two different IPv4 addresses for Ethernet and PPP tun interfaces the kernel
does not crash anymore.
About the fix, I suspect that internal structures are corrupted, so any kind of
fix at this point will fail, for example with this patch on 11.2-p4 it looks
like I keep getting these values after the crash:
(kgdb) print rt->rt_ifp->if_flags
$3 = 3
(kgdb) print rt->rt_ifp->if_index
$4 = 63488
I will try to setup on-line debugging to watch internal structures and see if I
can get an idea of what is breaking things up.
