[PATCH v2 net] net: virtio_net_hdr_to_skb: count transport header in UFO

From: Jonathan Davies
Date: Tue Nov 16 2021 - 12:43:08 EST

virtio_net_hdr_to_skb does not set the skb's gso_size and gso_type
correctly for UFO packets received via virtio-net that are a little over
the GSO size. This can lead to problems elsewhere in the networking
stack, e.g. ovs_vport_send dropping over-sized packets if gso_size is
not set.

This is due to the comparison

if (skb->len - p_off > gso_size)

not properly accounting for the transport layer header.

p_off includes the size of the transport layer header (thlen), so
skb->len - p_off is the size of the TCP/UDP payload.

gso_size is read from the virtio-net header. For UFO, fragmentation
happens at the IP level so does not need to include the UDP header.

Hence the calculation could be comparing a TCP/UDP payload length with
an IP payload length, causing legitimate virtio-net packets to have
lack gso_type/gso_size information.

Example: a UDP packet with payload size 1473 has IP payload size 1481.
If the guest used UFO, it is not fragmented and the virtio-net header's
flags indicate that it is a GSO frame (VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_UDP), with
gso_size = 1480 for an MTU of 1500. skb->len will be 1515 and p_off
will be 42, so skb->len - p_off = 1473. Hence the comparison fails, and
shinfo->gso_size and gso_type are not set as they should be.

Instead, add the UDP header length before comparing to gso_size when
using UFO. In this way, it is the size of the IP payload that is
compared to gso_size.
