Subject[PATCH 3.18 049/104] netns: provide pure entropy for net_hash_mix()
Date
From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

[ Upstream commit 355b98553789b646ed97ad801a619ff898471b92 ]

net_hash_mix() currently uses kernel address of a struct net,
and is used in many places that could be used to reveal this
address to a patient attacker, thus defeating KASLR, for
the typical case (initial net namespace, &init_net is
not dynamically allocated)

I believe the original implementation tried to avoid spending
too many cycles in this function, but security comes first.

Also provide entropy regardless of CONFIG_NET_NS.

Fixes: 0b4419162aa6 ("netns: introduce the net_hash_mix "salt" for hashes")
