The reproducer invokes shutdown() before entering the listener status.
After commit 94062790aedb ("tcp: defer shutdown(SEND_SHUTDOWN) for
TCP_SYN_RECV sockets"), the above causes the child to reach the accept
syscall in FIN_WAIT1 status.

Eric noted we can relax the existing assertion in __inet_accept()

The Linux kernel CVE team recommends that you update to the latest
stable kernel version for this, and many other bugfixes.  Individual
changes are never tested alone, but rather are part of a larger kernel
release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
issue can be found at these commits:
