Subject: CVE-2024-39490: ipv6: sr: fix missing sk_buff release in seg6_input_core

Description
===========

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

ipv6: sr: fix missing sk_buff release in seg6_input_core

The seg6_input() function is responsible for adding the SRH into a
packet, delegating the operation to the seg6_input_core(). This function
uses the skb_cow_head() to ensure that there is sufficient headroom in
the sk_buff for accommodating the link-layer header.
In the event that the skb_cow_header() function fails, the
seg6_input_core() catches the error but it does not release the sk_buff,
which will result in a memory leak.

This issue was introduced in commit af3b5158b89d ("ipv6: sr: fix BUG due
to headroom too small after SRH push") and persists even after commit
7a3f5b0de364 ("netfilter: add netfilter hooks to SRv6 data plane"),
where the entire seg6_input() code was refactored to deal with netfilter
hooks.

The proposed patch addresses the identified memory leak by requiring the
seg6_input_core() function to release the sk_buff in the event that
skb_cow_head() fails.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2024-39490 to this issue.

Mitigation
==========

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:
