commit 2eecc8afd02d8c65cf098cbae4de87f332dc21bd
Author: Florian Weimer <fweimer@redhat.com>
Date:   Mon Nov 9 12:48:41 2015 +0100

    Terminate process on invalid netlink response from kernel [BZ #12926]
    
    The recvmsg system calls for netlink sockets have been particularly
    prone to picking up unrelated data after a file descriptor race
    (where the descriptor is closed and reopened concurrently in a
    multi-threaded process, as the result of a file descriptor
    management issue elsewhere).  This commit adds additional error
    checking and aborts the process if a datagram of unexpected length
    (without the netlink header) is received, or an error code which
    cannot happen due to the way the netlink socket is used.
    
    	[BZ #12926]
    	Terminate process on invalid netlink response.
    	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/netlinkaccess.h
    	(__netlink_assert_response): Declare.
    	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/netlink_assert_response.c: New file.
    	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/Makefile [$(subdir) == inet]
    	(sysdep_routines): Add netlink_assert_response.
    	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/check_native.c (__check_native): Call
    	__netlink_assert_response.
    	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/check_pf.c (make_request): Likewise.
    	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/ifaddrs.c (__netlink_request): Likewise.
    	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/Versions (GLIBC_PRIVATE): Add
    	__netlink_assert_response.
