Subject[PATCH] ipv4: mitigate an integer underflow when comparing tcp timestamps
Date
Behind a loadbalancer which does NAT, peer->tcp_ts could be much smaller than
req->ts_recent. In this case, theoretically the req should not be ignored.

But in fact, it could be ignored, if peer->tcp_ts is so small that the
difference between this two number is larger than 2 to the power of 31.

I understand that under this situation, timestamp does not make sense any more,
because it actually comes from difference machines. However, if anyone
ever need to do the same investigation which I have done, this will
save some time for him.
