Subject: Re: [PATCH] tcp: fix syncookie regression

From: Eric Dumazet <>
Date: Sat, 10 Mar 2012 11:20:21 -0800

> commit ea4fc0d619 (ipv4: Don't use rt->rt_{src,dst} in ip_queue_xmit())
> added a serious regression on synflood handling.
> Simon Kirby discovered a successful connection was delayed by 20 seconds
> before being responsive.
> In my tests, I discovered that xmit frames were lost, and needed ~4
> retransmits and a socket dst rebuild before being really sent.
> In case of syncookie initiated connection, we use a different path to
> initialize the socket dst, and inet->cork.fl.u.ip4 is left cleared.
> As ip_queue_xmit() now depends on inet flow being setup, fix this by
> copying the temp flowi4 we use in cookie_v4_check().
