Linux kernel before 188.8.131.52 down to 2.6.12, while constructing an
ICMP response in icmp_send, does not properly handle when the
ip_options_echo function in icmp.c fails, which allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via vectors such as (1)
record-route and (2) timestamp IP options with the needaddr bit set
and a truncated value.
