ipv6: skb_dst() can be NULL in ipv6_hop_jumbo().
commit 2570a4f5428bcdb1077622342181755741e7fa60 upstream. This fixes CERT-FI FICORA #341748 Discovered by Olli Jarva and Tuomo Untinen from the CROSS project at Codenomicon Ltd. Just like in CVE-2007-4567, we can't rely upon skb_dst() being non-NULL at this point. We fixed that in commit e76b2b2567b83448c2ee85a896433b96150c92e6 ("[IPV6]: Do no rely on skb->dst before it is assigned.") However commit 483a47d2fe794328d29950fe00ce26dd405d9437 ("ipv6: added net argument to IP6_INC_STATS_BH") put a new version of the same bug into this function. Complicating analysis further, this bug can only trigger when network namespaces are enabled in the build. When namespaces are turned off, the dev_net() does not evaluate it's argument, so the dereference would not occur. So, for a long time, namespaces couldn't be turned on unless SYSFS was disabled. Therefore, this code has largely been disabled except by people turning it on explicitly for namespace development. With help from Eugene Teo <eugene@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
