Subject: [PATCH net v2] tipc: check minimum bearer MTU

Qian Zhang (张谦) reported a potential socket buffer overflow in
tipc_msg_build() which is also known as CVE-2016-8632: due to
insufficient checks, a buffer overflow can occur if MTU is too short for
even tipc headers. As anyone can set device MTU in a user/net namespace,
this issue can be abused by a regular user.

As agreed in the discussion on Ben Hutchings' original patch, we should
check the MTU at the moment a bearer is attached rather than for each
processed packet. We also need to repeat the check when bearer MTU is
adjusted to new device MTU. UDP case also needs a check to avoid
overflow when calculating bearer MTU.

Fixes: b97bf3fd8f6a ("[TIPC] Initial merge")

changes v1 to v2:
- add missing "static" to tipc_check_mtu() helper declaration
- rather than blocking device MTU change to too low value, disable tipc
  bearer if that happens (suggested by Ben Hutchings)
