From: Jeff Garzik <jgarzik@xxxxxxxxx> Date: Tue, 18 Feb 2003 13:33:06 -0500 It seems that dev_watchdog, among other places, does not assign a value to dev->xmit_lock_owner, when it takes the lock. I think this is a bug, but could be wrong ;-) Not a bug, only pieces of the transmit path need to follow this rule. It's only meant to detect devices which have been chained in a way which forms a loop during transmit.
