Subject[PATCH 3.16 214/233] ipv4: Should use consistent conditional judgement for ip fragment in __ip_append_data and ip_finish_output
3.16.48-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: zheng li <>

commit 0a28cfd51e17f4f0a056bcf66bfbe492c3b99f38 upstream.

There is an inconsistent conditional judgement in __ip_append_data and
ip_finish_output functions, the variable length in __ip_append_data just
include the length of application's payload and udp header, don't include
the length of ip header, but in ip_finish_output use
(skb->len > ip_skb_dst_mtu(skb)) as judgement, and skb->len include the
length of ip header.

That causes some particular application's udp payload whose length is
between (MTU - IP Header) and MTU were fragmented by ip_fragment even
though the rst->dev support UFO feature.

Add the length of ip header to length in __ip_append_data to keep
consistent conditional judgement as ip_finish_output for ip fragment.
