Re: ifconfig wlan0 create causes memory corruption
:When cloning an wlan interface with e.g
: ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev ath0
:a struct ifnet is allocated via if_alloc and then passed to
:ether_ifattach_bpf() which writes beyond the struct ifnet.
:This is especially a problem if struct ifnet size is close to a chunk
:size of the slab allocator - as it happens with the recent pf update.
:This was catched by guards I added to the slab allocator.
Ok, we need to track this down. I don't see anything in
ether_ifattach_bpf() itself that indexes past the end of the
ifnet, is it something ether_ifattach_bpf() calls or something
after ether_ifattach_bpf() returns? How much code do we have to
