Subject[PATCH 3.18 034/145] [PATCH 073/760] tcp: fix wrong checksum calculation on MTU probing
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Douglas Caetano dos Santos <douglascs@taghos.com.br>


[ Upstream commit 2fe664f1fcf7c4da6891f95708a7a56d3c024354 ]

With TCP MTU probing enabled and offload TX checksumming disabled,
tcp_mtu_probe() calculated the wrong checksum when a fragment being copied
into the probe's SKB had an odd length. This was caused by the direct use
of skb_copy_and_csum_bits() to calculate the checksum, as it pads the
fragment being copied, if needed. When this fragment was not the last, a
subsequent call used the previous checksum without considering this
padding.

The effect was a stale connection in one way, as even retransmissions
wouldn't solve the problem, because the checksum was never recalculated for
the full SKB length.
