Hey all-
A security discussion was recently given:
And a patch that I submitted awhile back was brought up.  Apparently some of
their testing revealed that they were able to force a buffer fragment in e1000
in which the trailing fragment was greater than 4 bytes.  As a result the
fragment check I introduced failed to detect the fragement and a partial
invalid frame was passed up into the network stack.  I've written this patch
to correct it.  I'm in the process of testing it now, but it makes good
logical sense to me.  Effectively it maintains a per-adapter state variable
which detects a non-EOP frame, and discards it and subsequent non-EOP frames
leading up to _and_ _including_ the next positive-EOP frame (as it is by
definition the last fragment).  This should prevent any and all partial frames
from entering the network stack from e1000.
