Subject[ 036/187] netpoll: fix netpoll_send_udp() bugs
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------


From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

[ Upstream commit 954fba0274058d27c7c07b5ea07c41b3b7477894 ]

Bogdan Hamciuc diagnosed and fixed following bug in netpoll_send_udp() :

"skb->len += len;" instead of "skb_put(skb, len);"

Meaning that _if_ a network driver needs to call skb_realloc_headroom(),
only packet headers would be copied, leaving garbage in the payload.

However the skb_realloc_headroom() must be avoided as much as possible
since it requires memory and netpoll tries hard to work even if memory
is exhausted (using a pool of preallocated skbs)

It appears netpoll_send_udp() reserved 16 bytes for the ethernet header,
which happens to work for typicall drivers but not all.

Right thing is to use LL_RESERVED_SPACE(dev)
(And also add dev->needed_tailroom of tailroom)

This patch combines both fixes.

Many thanks to Bogdan for raising this issue.
