[ 098/136 ] netfilter: nf_ct_sip: dont drop packets with offsets pointingoutside the packet

From: Steven Rostedt
Date: Fri May 17 2013 - 23:11:00 EST stable review patch.
If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Patrick McHardy <kaber@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 3a7b21eaf4fb3c971bdb47a98f570550ddfe4471 ]

Some Cisco phones create huge messages that are spread over multiple packets.
After calculating the offset of the SIP body, it is validated to be within
the packet and the packet is dropped otherwise. This breaks operation of
these phones. Since connection tracking is supposed to be passive, just let
those packets pass unmodified and untracked.
