SubjectRe: [PATCH] 2.0-2.5 bug in ip_options_compile
   From: Jeff DeFouw <>
Date: Fri, 13 Sep 2002 17:08:38 -0500

While reading about IP options, I found the IPOPT_END padding (cleaning)
in ip_options_compile (net/ipv4/ip_options.c) was not incrementing a
pointer. There should be an optptr++ in the for end-of-block statement
to go along with the l--, otherwise it's just comparing the same byte
for each l. Patch is against 2.4.19. From the kernel source browser
this bug is also in 2.5.31, 2.2.21, and 2.0.39.

Thanks a lot for spotting this, I will add this
to my 2.4.x and 2.5.x trees and merge upstream.
