Hi,

Just compiled a fresh 4.9.55, with same .config, same user space than 4.9.54
and discovered I had no network because ifup fails because dhcp cleint
fails. As everything is identical, 4.9.54 still works, I guess one patch in
net/core/... did break something.


Please revert commit 345c66695569db83eed100723e4df72cb54df7de

     socket, bpf: fix possible use after free

This will fix the problem.

Thanks for the quick answer. Glad to see it is already known and almost fixed. I'll rather wait for 56 (to get the correct patch dependency merged) and remove 55 kernel image from /boot in the meantime.

Glas my headless NAS has a fixed address because it is more tricky to get back in order and I switched it to 55 already.

Thanks for the support,
