[PATCH 3.19.y-ckt 118/130] ipvs: skb_orphan in case of forwarding

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Thu Aug 27 2015 - 18:18:09 EST

3.19.8-ckt6 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Alex Gartrell <agartrell@xxxxxx>

commit 71563f3414e917c62acd8e0fb0edf8ed6af63e4b upstream.

It is possible that we bind against a local socket in early_demux when we
are actually going to want to forward it. In this case, the socket serves
no purpose and only serves to confuse things (particularly functions which
implicitly expect sk_fullsock to be true, like ip_local_out).
Additionally, skb_set_owner_w is totally broken for non full-socks.
