Subject: [PATCH 3.13.y-ckt 21/80] ipv4: try to cache dst_entries which would cause a redirect

3.13.11-ckt17 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Hannes Frederic Sowa <hannes@...essinduktion.org>

commit df4d92549f23e1c037e83323aff58a21b3de7fe0 upstream.

Not caching dst_entries which cause redirects could be exploited by hosts
on the same subnet, causing a severe DoS attack. This effect aggravated
since commit f88649721268999 ("ipv4: fix dst race in sk_dst_get()").

Lookups causing redirects will be allocated with DST_NOCACHE set which
will force dst_release to free them via RCU.  Unfortunately waiting for
RCU grace period just takes too long, we can end up with >1M dst_entries
waiting to be released and the system will run OOM. rcuos threads cannot
catch up under high softirq load.

Attaching the flag to emit a redirect later on to the specific skb allows
us to cache those dst_entries thus reducing the pressure on allocation
and deallocation.

This issue was discovered by Marcelo Leitner.
