Subject[PATCH 2.6.32 15/62] udp: fix behavior of wrong checksums
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

commit beb39db59d14990e401e235faf66a6b9b31240b0 upstream.

We have two problems in UDP stack related to bogus checksums :

1) We return -EAGAIN to application even if receive queue is not empty.
This breaks applications using edge trigger epoll()

2) Under UDP flood, we can loop forever without yielding to other
processes, potentially hanging the host, especially on non SMP.

This patch is an attempt to make things better.

We might in the future add extra support for rt applications
wanting to better control time spent doing a recv() in a hostile
environment. For example we could validate checksums before queuing
packets in socket receive queue.
