Subject[103/145] netfilter: xt_recent: fix buffer overflow
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

----------------
From: Tim Gardner <tim.gardner@canonical.com>
commit 2c08522e5d2f0af2d6f05be558946dcbf8173683 upstream.

e->index overflows e->stamps[] every ip_pkt_list_tot packets.

Consider the case when ip_pkt_list_tot==1; the first packet received is stored
in e->stamps[0] and e->index is initialized to 1. The next received packet
timestamp is then stored at e->stamps[1] in recent_entry_update(),
a buffer overflow because the maximum e->stamps[] index is 0.
