Subject: netfilter 60/62: ebtables: abort if next_offset is too small

commit 1756de262e41112a8a8927808eb2f03d21fd4786
Author: Florian Westphal <>
Date:   Mon Feb 15 18:15:55 2010 +0100

    netfilter: ebtables: abort if next_offset is too small
    next_offset must be > 0, otherwise this loops forever.
    The offset also contains the size of the ebt_entry structure
    itself, so anything smaller is invalid.
