[PATCH 4.9 062/104] udp: disable inner UDP checksum offloads in IPsec case

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


From: Ansis Atteka <aatteka@xxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit b40c5f4fde22fb98eff205b3aece05b471c24eed ]

Otherwise, UDP checksum offloads could corrupt ESP packets by attempting
to calculate UDP checksum when this inner UDP packet is already protected
by IPsec.

One way to reproduce this bug is to have a VM with virtio_net driver (UFO
set to ON in the guest VM); and then encapsulate all guest's Ethernet
frames in Geneve; and then further encrypt Geneve with IPsec. In this
case following symptoms are observed:
1. If using ixgbe NIC, then it will complain with following error message:
ixgbe 0000:01:00.1: partial checksum but l4 proto=32!
2. Receiving IPsec stack will drop all the corrupted ESP packets and
increase XfrmInStateProtoError counter in /proc/net/xfrm_stat.
3. iperf UDP test from the VM with packet sizes above MTU will not work at
4. iperf TCP test from the VM will get ridiculously low performance because.
