"[PATCH] sctp: Fix kernel panic while process protocol violation parameter Since call to function sctp_sf_abort_violation() need paramter 'arg' with 'struct sctp_chunk' type, it will read the chunk type and chunk length from the chunk_hdr member of chunk. But call to sctp_sf_violation_paramlen() always with 'struct sctp_paramhdr' type's parameter, it will be passed to sctp_sf_abort_violation(). This may cause kernel panic." Upstream commit: ba0166708ef4da7eeb61dd92bbba4d5a749d6561 This is user-triggerable. Thanks, Eugene
