Subject[ 090/109] tcp: Add TCP_USER_TIMEOUT negative value check
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

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

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


From: Hangbin Liu <liuhangbin@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 42493570100b91ef663c4c6f0c0fdab238f9d3c2 ]

TCP_USER_TIMEOUT is a TCP level socket option that takes an unsigned int. But
patch "tcp: Add TCP_USER_TIMEOUT socket option"(dca43c75) didn't check the negative
values. If a user assign -1 to it, the socket will set successfully and wait
for 4294967295 miliseconds. This patch add a negative value check to avoid
this issue.
