SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] 6lowpan: Fix fragmentation with link-local compressed addresses
From
Hello,

There is a patch which fixes link-local address uncompression:

http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.network.zigbee.devel/1717

I came across a similar solution but didn't submit it as another patch
already existed.
This patch instead focus on fragmented packet with link-local address
compression,
which is related but a different bug.

frame->skb is used to reassemble the 6lowpan packet when new fragments
are received.
This is the 'fragments assembling' switch at the beginning of
lowpan_process_data().
It will reassemble fragments until the packet is successfully reassembled.
Once it is, skb is replaced:

dev_kfree_skb(skb);
skb = frame->skb;
kfree(frame);

And the process continues as with other 6lowpan packets.

In particular:

_saddr = mac_cb(skb)->sa.hwaddr;
_daddr = mac_cb(skb)->da.hwaddr;

Several lines later there are:

err = lowpan_uncompress_addr(skb, &hdr.saddr, lowpan_llprefix,
lowpan_unc_llconf[tmp], skb->data);
err = lowpan_uncompress_addr(skb, &hdr.daddr, lowpan_llprefix,
lowpan_unc_llconf[tmp], skb->data);

These two lines should use _saddr/_daddr instead of skb->data, which
fixes the link-local address uncompression.
I'm able to use link-layer addresses with these two patches and it works well.
