Bug #2660: Use of IPDIVERT causes kernel crashes

* Author: shamaz
* Status: New
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: 
* Target version: 
Hello. I was trying to set up NAT on DragonFly machine and got a crash. I
have a following configuration:

1) Machine A with DragonFlyBSD 3.4
2) Machine B (the one which crashes) with DragonFlyBSD x86_64 (from git branch DragonFly_RELEASE_3_6)
3) Machine C is a vkernel machine hosted by B

Machine B kernel was compiled with  following lines in config:


Machine B has 2 network interfaces: nfe0 (with connection to A) and tap0
(with connection to C) configured as follows:

$ ifconfig nfe0 netmask up (A has an address assigned to re0 which is the interface on the other side)
$ ifconfig tap0 netmask up (C has an address assigned to vke0)

So I do as follows:

On machine A:
$ route add default

On machine B:
$ sysctl net.inet.ip.forwarding=1
$ ipfw -f flush (accept all because of line in config)
$ natd -interface tap0
$ ipfw add 100 divert natd ip from any to any in via tap0
$ ipfw add 110 divert natd ip from any to any out via tap0

Again, on machine A:
$ ping

Machine B crashes. 100% repeatable

Here is a part of the backtrace:
