Subject[patch 06/26] NETFILTER: nf_conntrack_tcp: fix connection reopening
2.6.22-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

[NETFILTER]: nf_conntrack_tcp: fix connection reopening

With your description I could reproduce the bug and actually you were
completely right: the code above is incorrect. Somehow I was able to
misread RFC1122 and mixed the roles :-(:

When a connection is >>closed actively<<, it MUST linger in
TIME-WAIT state for a time 2xMSL (Maximum Segment Lifetime).
However, it MAY >>accept<< a new SYN from the remote TCP to
reopen the connection directly from TIME-WAIT state, if it:
[...]

The fix is as follows: if the receiver initiated an active close, then the
sender may reopen the connection - otherwise try to figure out if we hold
a dead connection.
