Subject[ 35/47] tcp: tcp_replace_ts_recent() should not be called from tcp_validate_incoming()
Date
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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


From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

[ Upstream commit bd090dfc634ddd711a5fbd0cadc6e0ab4977bcaf ]

We added support for RFC 5961 in latest kernels but TCP fails
to perform exhaustive check of ACK sequence.

We can update our view of peer tsval from a frame that is
later discarded by tcp_ack()

This makes timestamps enabled sessions vulnerable to injection of
a high tsval : peers start an ACK storm, since the victim
sends a dupack each time it receives an ACK from the other peer.

As tcp_validate_incoming() is called before tcp_ack(), we should
not peform tcp_replace_ts_recent() from it, and let callers do it
at the right time.
