Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.4 6/9] drivers/net/wan/lapbether: Fixed the value of hard_header_len
Date
From: Xie He <xie.he.0141@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 9dc829a135fb5927f1519de11286e2bbb79f5b66 ]

When this driver transmits data,
first this driver will remove a pseudo header of 1 byte,
then the lapb module will prepend the LAPB header of 2 or 3 bytes,
then this driver will prepend a length field of 2 bytes,
then the underlying Ethernet device will prepend its own header.

So, the header length required should be:
-1 + 3 + 2 + "the header length needed by the underlying device".

This patch fixes kernel panic when this driver is used with AF_PACKET
SOCK_DGRAM sockets.
