Subject[PATCH 4.4 01/16] tcp: do not mangle skb->cb[] in tcp_make_synack()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>


[ Upstream commit 3b11775033dc87c3d161996c54507b15ba26414a ]

Christoph Paasch sent a patch to address the following issue :

tcp_make_synack() is leaving some TCP private info in skb->cb[],
then send the packet by other means than tcp_transmit_skb()

tcp_transmit_skb() makes sure to clear skb->cb[] to not confuse
IPv4/IPV6 stacks, but we have no such cleanup for SYNACK.

tcp_make_synack() should not use tcp_init_nondata_skb() :

tcp_init_nondata_skb() really should be limited to skbs put in write/rtx
queues (the ones that are only sent via tcp_transmit_skb())

This patch fixes the issue and should even save few cpu cycles ;)

Fixes: 971f10eca186 ("tcp: better TCP_SKB_CB layout to reduce cache line misses")
