Thank you for working on this.

Please add a Fixes: tag, otherwise you are asking maintainers and
stable teams to find the original bug,
while you are in a much better position, since you spent time on
fixing the issue.

Also I object to this fix.

If packets have been stored temporarily in GRO, they should be
released at some point,
normally at the end of a napi poll.

By released, I mean that these packets should reach the upper stack,
instead of being dropped without
any notification.

It seems a call to gro_normal_list() is missing somewhere.

Can you find where ?

Thanks !
