Use CVE-2014-3144.

(The _NEST variant was introduced at a later time, but the affected
code is somewhat analogous, and the lack of an skb->len check for the
_NEST variant probably can't be considered an independent mistake
relative to the lack of an skb->len check in the earlier code.)


> The remainder calculation for the BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST extension is

Use CVE-2014-3145.
