SubjectRe: [PATCH] dvb-core: Fix ULE decapsulation bug when less than 4 bytes of ULE SNDU is packed into the remaining bytes of a MPEG2-TS frame
From
Okay, resending. Hope it won't do line wrapping.

ULE (Unidirectional Lightweight Encapsulation RFC 4326) decapsulation
code has a bug that incorrectly treats ULE SNDU packed into the
remaining 2 or 3 bytes of a MPEG2-TS frame as having invalid pointer
field on the subsequent MPEG2-TS frame.

This patch was generated and tested against v2.6.32-rc8. Similar patch
was applied and tested using 2.6.27 which is similar to the latest
dvb_net.c, except for network device statistical data structure. I
suspect that this bug was introduced in kernel version 2.6.15, but had
not verified it.

Care has been taken not to introduce more bug by fixing this bug, but
please scrutinize the code for I always produces buggy code.
