Subject[PATCH 4.9 179/199] tcp: md5: fix potential overestimation of TCP option space
Date
From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

[ Upstream commit 9424e2e7ad93ffffa88f882c9bc5023570904b55 ]

Back in 2008, Adam Langley fixed the corner case of packets for flows
having all of the following options : MD5 TS SACK

Since MD5 needs 20 bytes, and TS needs 12 bytes, no sack block
can be cooked from the remaining 8 bytes.

tcp_established_options() correctly sets opts->num_sack_blocks
to zero, but returns 36 instead of 32.

This means TCP cooks packets with 4 extra bytes at the end
of options, containing unitialized bytes.

Fixes: 33ad798c924b ("tcp: options clean up")
