    Subject[patch 37/48] tcp: Fix length tcp_splice_data_recv passes to skb_splice_bits.
    2.6.28-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Dimitris Michailidis <>

    [ Upstream commit 9fa5fdf291c9b58b1cb8b4bb2a0ee57efa21d635 ]

    tcp_splice_data_recv has two lengths to consider: the len parameter it
    gets from tcp_read_sock, which specifies the amount of data in the skb,
    and rd_desc->count, which is the amount of data the splice caller still
    wants. Currently it passes just the latter to skb_splice_bits, which then
    splices min(rd_desc->count, skb->len - offset) bytes.

    Most of the time this is fine, except when the skb contains urgent data.
    In that case len goes only up to the urgent byte and is less than
    skb->len - offset. By ignoring len tcp_splice_data_recv may a) splice
    data tcp_read_sock told it not to, b) return to tcp_read_sock a value > len.

    Now, tcp_read_sock doesn't handle used > len and leaves the socket in a
    bad state (both sk_receive_queue and copied_seq are bad at that point)
    resulting in duplicated data and corruption.

    Fix by passing min(rd_desc->count, len) to skb_splice_bits.
