[PATCH net] virtio-net: set queues after driver_ok

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Commit 25266128fe16 ("virtio-net: fix race between set queues and
probe") tries to fix the race between set queues and probe by calling
_virtnet_set_queues() before DRIVER_OK is set. This violates virtio
spec. Fixing this by setting queues after virtio_device_ready().
