Race condition in the do_add_counters function in netfilter for Linux
kernel 2.6.16 allows local users with CAP_NET_ADMIN capabilities to
read kernel memory by triggering the race condition in a way that
produces a size value that is inconsistent with allocated memory,
which leads to a buffer over-read in IPT_ENTRY_ITERATE.
