            Bug ID: 193669
           Summary: [ipfw][dummynet] "copy_obj   (WARN)" kernel warning
                    for ipfw pipe show <num>
           Product: Base System
           Version: 9.3-RELEASE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: Needs Triage
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: major12 at gmail.com

Kernel emits a lot of warnings for 
ipfw pipe show <number>

Warnings looks like 
copy_obj   (WARN) type 2 flowset 133077 have 28 need 120
copy_obj   (WARN) type 4 inst 66541 have 92 need 96

Seems that code responsible for this error is in ip_dummynet.c
    if (have < o->len || o->len == 0 || o->type == 0) {
        D("(WARN) type %d %s %d have %d need %d",
            o->type, msg, i, have, o->len);
        return 1;

Warnings are shown after some traffic passed via pipe.
And command like 'ipfw pipe show' - emits no warnings.
So warning are observed only in case if particular pipe or pipes list is shown.

How to reproduce:
Install 9.3-RELEASE

Load ipfw.ko and dummynet.ko

Create some pipes
ipfw pipe 1 config bw 5bit/s
ipfw pipe 2 config bw 5bit/s

Create pipe with mask
ipfw pipe 3 config bw 5bit/s mask src-ip 0xffffffff

Configure ipfw
ipfw add 100 pipe 3 ip from any to me

Disable pipe expiration
sysctl net.inet.ip.dummynet.expire=0

Then generate some traffic. For my case it was enough to have 260+ entries in

Now command like
ipfw pipe show 3 
ipfw pipe show 1,3 
will emit few kernel warnings in console and in /var/log/messages.

And just 'ipfw pipe show' works ok.
