[ovs-dev] [patch v2] conntrack: Fix ICMPv4 error data L4 length check.

Tue Aug 27 23:59:02 UTC 2019


The ICMPv4 error data L4 length check was found to be too strict for TCP,
expecting a minimum of 20 rather than 8 bytes.  This worked by
hapenstance for other inner protocols.  The approach is to explicitly
handle the ICMPv4 error data L4 length check and to do this for all
supported inner protocols in the same way.  Making the code common
between protocols also allows the existing ICMPv4 related UDP tests to
cover TCP and ICMP inner protocol cases.
Note that ICMPv6 does not have an 8 byte limit for error L4 data.

Fixes: a489b16854b5 ("conntrack: New userspace connection tracker.")

v2: Rebase to fix git applying to wrong function (extract_l4_icmp6 vs
    extract_l4_icmp) with same match signature.

    Minor fix to related comment in extract_l4().
