Description (partial)


netio crashes when filtering slow-path packet with ACL


Condition (1)(3)(4)(5) must all be TRUE
Condition (2) is optional:

(1) An ACL (ipv4 or ipv6) is applied on interface.
(2) The ACL optionally contains "log" keyword. Note that "log"   
    keyword is NOT a required condition. It merely increases
    the chance that a packet filtered by hardware is sent to 
    netio for slow-path ACL matching, because "log" triggers
    ACL to generate a console log for filtered packet, and
    the generation, delivery of such console log involves
    ACL logic in netio. There are other conditions where a
    packet is sent to netio without any ACE with "log" keyword.
(3) The ACL has been previously edited. Specifically, a non-remark
    ACE is changed to a remark ACE as result of this edit. This
    is the single most important trigger of this bug
(4) A packet that matches to previously non-remark ACE is filtered
    by the slow path, i.e. it is sent to netio for slow path processing
(5) The ACL must contain object-group, and/or it is applied with 
    compression (the compression level is 1 or 3, not 0).
