batman-adv: Linearize fragment packets before merge
Sven Eckelmann [Sun, 6 Feb 2011 23:26:43 +0000 (23:26 +0000)]
We access the data inside the skbs of two fragments directly using memmove
during the merge. The data of the skb could span over multiple skb pages. An
direct access without knowledge about the pages would lead to an invalid memory
access.
