Subject: [PATCH 3.13 252/259] tipc: clear 'next'-pointer of message fragments before reassembly

3.13.11.6 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jon Paul Maloy <jon.maloy@...csson.com>

[ Upstream commit 999417549c16dd0e3a382aa9f6ae61688db03181 ]

If the 'next' pointer of the last fragment buffer in a message is not
zeroed before reassembly, we risk ending up with a corrupt message,
since the reassembly function itself isn't doing this.

Currently, when a buffer is retrieved from the deferred queue of the
broadcast link, the next pointer is not cleared, with the result as
described above.

This commit corrects this, and thereby fixes a bug that may occur when
long broadcast messages are transmitted across dual interfaces. The bug
has been present since 40ba3cdf542a469aaa9083fa041656e59b109b90 ("tipc:
message reassembly using fragment chain")

This commit should be applied to both net and net-next.
