pppoe: Check packet length on all receive paths [rhel-5.3]
Last modified: 2015-05-04 21:15:14 EDT
Description of problem:
The length field in the PPPOE header wasn't checked completely. It lacks of a
lower-bound check. Also, call skb_copy_datagram_iovec instead of memcpy_toiovec
so that paged packets (rare for PPPOE) are handled properly.
Proposed upstream patch:
