then tcp_do_sendmsg() calls:
skb = sock_wmalloc(sk, tmp, 0, GFP_KERNEL);
but that call never returns. It doesn't get to
the code where the comment says: "If we didn't get
any memory, we need to sleep."
I've mucked with sock->sk->allocation flavors but to no avail.
BTW, this is 2.2.16-22 (stock red hat 6.2 kernel)
Is this fixed in later kernels, or is there some semaphore/spinlock
needed to call sock_sendmsg()/recvmsg() from kernel threads?
Is there a race with skbuff allocation/deallocation from the
NET_BH network bottom half handler or NIC interrupt handler
that I can prevent from happening somehow?
