You may experience a TMM panic if a packet is cloned from a packet with an IP fragment and TMM fails to transmit the cloned packet. The following is present in the TMM log: <13> Oct 15 11:37:16 f5-5a notice panic: ../net/packet.c:136: Assertion "packet is not locked by a driver" failed.
TMM will panic and restart. This will repeat any times this condition occurs.
This happens when using a clone pool. If a packet is received that needs to be cloned, originates from an IP fragment, and fails to transmit, then this condition can occur.
When a packet is cloned, the original packet flags were preserved. If the original packet was locked, then this flag was propagated to the cloned packet. The fix is to clear this flag in the cloned packet when it is created.
