Subject[PATCH 4.3 003/125] tipc: linearize arriving NAME_DISTR and LINK_PROTO buffers
4.3-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Jon Paul Maloy <>

[ Upstream commit 5cbb28a4bf65c7e4daa6c25b651fed8eb888c620 ]

Testing of the new UDP bearer has revealed that reception of
message buffers is not prepared for the case that those may be

We now linearize all such buffers before they are delivered up to the
generic reception layer.

In order for the commit to apply cleanly to 'net' and 'stable', we do
the change in the function tipc_udp_recv() for now. Later, we will post
a commit to 'net-next' moving the linearization to generic code, in
tipc_named_rcv() and tipc_link_proto_rcv().

Fixes: commit d0f91938bede ("tipc: add ip/udp media type")
