[ 101/136 ] netfilter: ctnetlink: dont permit ct creation with random tuple

From: Steven Rostedt
Date: Fri May 17 2013 - 23:11:40 EST stable review patch.
If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Florian Westphal <fw@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 442fad9423b78319e0019a7f5047eddf3317afbc ]

Userspace can cause kernel panic by not specifying orig/reply
tuple: kernel will create a tuple with random stack values.

Problem is that tuple.dst.dir will be random, too, which
causes nf_ct_tuplehash_to_ctrack() to return garbage.
