Subject[patch 67/76] NETFILTER: nfnetlink_queue: fix computation of allocated size for netlink skb
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------
From: Eric Leblond <eric@inl.fr>

Upstream commit cabaa9bf:

Size of the netlink skb was wrongly computed because the formula was using
NLMSG_ALIGN instead of NLMSG_SPACE. NLMSG_ALIGN does not add the room for
netlink header as NLMSG_SPACE does. This was causing a failure of message
building in some cases.

On my test system, all messages for packets in range [8*k+41, 8*k+48] where k
is an integer were invalid and the corresponding packets were dropped.
