Subject: [PATCH] drivers/net/wan/lapbether: Added needed_headroom and a skb->len check

1. Added a skb->len check

This driver expects upper layers to include a pseudo header of 1 byte
when passing down a skb for transmission. This driver will read this
1-byte header. This patch added a skb->len check before reading the
header to make sure the header exists.

2. Changed to use needed_headroom instead of hard_header_len to request
necessary headroom to be allocated

In net/packet/af_packet.c, the function packet_snd first reserves a
headroom of length (dev->hard_header_len + dev->needed_headroom).
Then if the socket is a SOCK_DGRAM socket, it calls dev_hard_header,
which calls dev->header_ops->create, to create the link layer header.
If the socket is a SOCK_RAW socket, it "un-reserves" a headroom of
length (dev->hard_header_len), and assumes the user to provide the
appropriate link layer header.

So according to the logic of af_packet.c, dev->hard_header_len should
be the length of the header that would be created by
dev->header_ops->create.

However, this driver doesn't provide dev->header_ops, so logically
dev->hard_header_len should be 0.

So we should use dev->needed_headroom instead of dev->hard_header_len
to request necessary headroom to be allocated.

This change fixes kernel panic when this driver is used with AF_PACKET
SOCK_RAW sockets.
