ipv4: tcp: unicast_sock should not land outside of TCP stack
commit be9f4a44e7d41cee (ipv4: tcp: remove per net tcp_sock) added a selinux regression, reported and bisected by John Stultz selinux_ip_postroute_compat() expect to find a valid sk->sk_security pointer, but this field is NULL for unicast_sock It turns out that unicast_sock are really temporary stuff to be able to reuse part of IP stack (ip_append_data()/ip_push_pending_frames()) Fact is that frames sent by ip_send_unicast_reply() should be orphaned to not fool LSM. Note IPv6 never had this problem, as tcp_v6_send_response() doesnt use a fake socket at all. I'll probably implement tcp_v4_send_response() to remove these unicast_sock in linux-3.7 Reported-by: John Stultz <johnstul@us.ibm.com> Bisected-by: John Stultz <johnstul@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com> Cc: Paul Moore <paul@paul-moore.com> Cc: Eric Paris <eparis@parisplace.org> Cc: "Serge E.
