Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next] udp: properly support MSG_PEEK with truncated

From: Eric Dumazet <>

> From: Eric Dumazet <>
> Backport of this upstream commit into stable kernels :
> 89c22d8c3b27 ("net: Fix skb csum races when peeking")
> exposed a bug in udp stack vs MSG_PEEK support, when user provides
> a buffer smaller than skb payload.
> In this case,

> This bug does not happen in upstream kernels since Al Viro did a great
> job to replace this into :
> skb_copy_and_csum_datagram_msg(skb, sizeof(struct udphdr), msg);
> This variant is safe vs short buffers.
> For the time being, instead reverting Herbert Xu patch and add back
> skb->ip_summed invalid changes, simply store the result of
> udp_lib_checksum_complete() so that we avoid computing the checksum a
> second time, and avoid the problematic
> skb_copy_and_csum_datagram_iovec() call.
> This patch can be applied on recent kernels as it avoids a double
> checksumming, then backported to stable kernels as a bug fix.
