Subject: [PATCH 0/3] AF_RXRPC fixes [ver #3]

Hi Dave,

Here are some AF_RXRPC fixes:

 (1) Fix to remove incorrect checksum calculation made during recvmsg().  It's
     unnecessary to try to do this there since we check the checksum before
     reading the RxRPC header from the packet.

 (2) Fix to prevent the sending of an ABORT packet in response to another
     ABORT packet and inducing a storm.

 (3) Fix UDP MTU calculation from parsing ICMP_FRAG_NEEDED packets where we
     don't handle the ICMP packet not specifying an MTU size.

The above changes since commit c88507fbad8055297c1d1e21e599f46960cbee39:

  ipv6: don't set DST_NOCOUNT for remotely added routes (2014-03-06 17:29:27 -0500)
