I did not mean to return 0. But to fail a request that would pull an
unsafe amount. The caller must get a clear error signal.

Back to the original report: the issue should already have been fixed
by commit 876e8ca83667 ("net: fix NULL pointer in skb_segment_list").
But that commit is in the kernel for which you report the error.

Turns out that the crash is not in skb_segment_list, but later in
__udpv4_gso_segment_list_csum. Which unconditionally dereferences
udp_hdr(seg).

The above fix also mentions skb pull as the culprit, but does not
include a BPF program. If this can be reached in other ways, then we
do need a stronger test in skb_segment_list, as you propose.

I don't want to narrowly check whether udp_hdr is safe. Essentially,
an SKB_GSO_FRAGLIST skb layout cannot be trusted at all if even one
byte would get pulled.
