	Yes, only IP_VS_SO_SET_FLUSH uses len 0. We can go with
this change but you do not need to target net tree, as the
problem is not fatal net-next works too. What happens is
that we may lookup services with random search keys which
is harmless.

	Another option is to add new block after this one:

        } else if (cmd == IP_VS_SO_SET_TIMEOUT) {
                /* Set timeout values for (tcp tcpfin udp) */
                ret = ip_vs_set_timeout(ipvs, (struct ip_vs_timeout_user *)arg);
                goto out_unlock;
        }

	such as:

	} else if (!len) {
		/* No more commands with len=0 below */
		ret = -EINVAL;
		goto out_unlock;
	}

	It give more chance for future commands to use len=0
but the drawback is that the check happens under mutex. So, I'm
fine with both versions, it is up to you to decide :)
