Subject: Re: [PATCH] icmp: Fixed bug in raw sockets causing incorrect ICMP
 SNMP counter values

Forgive me for possibly being a little stupid here (This is my first
patch to Linux so I am slightly over my head)

Is this issue not addressed above the file where the following check is done?

if (iphlen > length)
    goto error_free;
