Subject[ 169/184] netfilter: nf_ct_ipv4: packets with wrong ihl are
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
invalid

From: Jozsef Kadlecsik <kadlec@blackhole.kfki.hu>

commit 07153c6ec074257ade76a461429b567cff2b3a1e upstream.

It was reported that the Linux kernel sometimes logs:

klogd: [2629147.402413] kernel BUG at net / netfilter /
nf_conntrack_proto_tcp.c: 447!
klogd: [1072212.887368] kernel BUG at net / netfilter /
nf_conntrack_proto_tcp.c: 392

ipv4_get_l4proto() in nf_conntrack_l3proto_ipv4.c and tcp_error() in
nf_conntrack_proto_tcp.c should catch malformed packets, so the errors
at the indicated lines - TCP options parsing - should not happen.
However, tcp_error() relies on the "dataoff" offset to the TCP header,
calculated by ipv4_get_l4proto(). But ipv4_get_l4proto() does not check
bogus ihl values in IPv4 packets, which then can slip through tcp_error()
and get caught at the TCP options parsing routines.

The patch fixes ipv4_get_l4proto() by invalidating packets with bogus
ihl value.

The patch closes netfilter bugzilla id 771.
