SubjectFix for hanging ip_masq_ftp
Date
After a night of hacking, I found the source of the "hanging in DIR" problem
that has plagued the users of ip_masq_ftp for some time. It turned out this
problem only shows up when using PPP, since the sbk->protocol field isn't
set properly when an skb is resized. This causes the PPP driver to discard the
packet. Here is the fix:
