Subject[Bug 420] New: Divide by zero (/proc/sys/net/ipv4/neigh/DEV/base_reachable_time)

Summary: Divide by zero
Kernel Version: 2.4.20, 2.5.63
Status: NEW
Severity: normal

Distribution:Debian GNU/Linux 3.0, Vine Linux 2.6
Hardware Environment:
Software Environment:
Problem Description:
Divide by zero (/proc/sys/net/ipv4/neigh/DEV/base_reachable_time)
Steps to reproduce:
I found the problem of neigh_rand_reach_time() in net/core/neighbour.c.
This function called by neigh_periodic_timer() each 300 seconds,
and argument of neigh_periodic_timer() is p->base_reachable_time.
base_reachable_time can set to 0 by below sequence.

echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/neigh/DEV/base_reachable_time

But neigh_rand_reach_time() divide by its argument.

unsigned long neigh_rand_reach_time(unsigned long base)
return (net_random() % base) + (base>>1);
