Subject[PATCH 4.4 60/74] ipv6: fix udpv6 sendmsg crash caused by too small MTU
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Mike Maloney <>

[ Upstream commit 749439bfac6e1a2932c582e2699f91d329658196 ]

The logic in __ip6_append_data() assumes that the MTU is at least large
enough for the headers. A device's MTU may be adjusted after being
added while sendmsg() is processing data, resulting in
__ip6_append_data() seeing any MTU. For an mtu smaller than the size of
the fragmentation header, the math results in a negative 'maxfraglen',
which causes problems when refragmenting any previous skb in the
skb_write_queue, leaving it possibly malformed.

Instead sendmsg returns EINVAL when the mtu is calculated to be less
than IPV6_MIN_MTU.
