[PATCH 4.9 003/105] net: reduce skb_warn_bad_offload() noise

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Fri Aug 04 2017 - 19:16:39 EST

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


From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit b2504a5dbef3305ef41988ad270b0e8ec289331c upstream.

Dmitry reported warnings occurring in __skb_gso_segment() [1]

All SKB_GSO_DODGY producers can allow user space to feed
packets that trigger the current check.

We could prevent them from doing so, rejecting packets, but
this might add regressions to existing programs.

It turns out our SKB_GSO_DODGY handlers properly set up checksum
information that is needed anyway when packets needs to be segmented.

By checking again skb_needs_check() after skb_mac_gso_segment(),
we should remove these pesky warnings, at a very minor cost.

With help from Willem de Bruijn
