[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 095/126] packet: fix match_fanout_group()

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Wed Dec 09 2015 - 04:41:30 EST

3.16.7-ckt21 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 161642e24fee40fba2c5bc2ceacc00d118a22d65 upstream.

Recent TCP listener patches exposed a prior af_packet bug :
match_fanout_group() blindly assumes it is always safe
to cast sk to a packet socket to compare fanout with af_packet_priv

But SYNACK packets can be sent while attached to request_sock, which
are smaller than a "struct sock".

We can read non existent memory and crash.

Fixes: c0de08d04215 ("af_packet: don't emit packet on orig fanout group")
Fixes: ca6fb0651883 ("tcp: attach SYNACK messages to request sockets instead of listener")
