Subject[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 144/144] tcp: Fix crash in TCP Fast Open
3.16.7-ckt10 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ben Hutchings <>

Commit 355a901e6cf1 ("tcp: make connect() mem charging friendly")
changed tcp_send_syn_data() to perform an open-coded copy of the 'syn'
skb rather than using skb_copy_expand().

The open-coded copy does not cover the skb_shared_info::gso_segs
field, so in the new skb it is left set to 0. When this commit was
backported into stable branches between 3.10.y and 3.16.7-ckty
inclusive, it triggered the BUG() in tcp_transmit_skb().

Since Linux 3.18 the GSO segment count is kept in the
tcp_skb_cb::tcp_gso_segs field and tcp_send_syn_data() does copy the
tcp_skb_cb structure to the new skb, so mainline and newer stable
branches are not affected.

Set skb_shared_info::gso_segs to the correct value of 1.
