Array index overflow in the xfrm_sk_policy_insert function in
xfrm_user.c in Linux kernel 2.6 allows local users to cause a denial
of service (oops or deadlock) and possibly execute arbitrary code via
a p->dir value that is larger than XFRM_POLICY_OUT, which is used as
an index in the sock->sk_policy array.
