The ip_frag_reasm function in net/ipv4/ip_fragment.c in the Linux
kernel 2.6.32-rc8, and 2.6.29 and later versions before 2.6.32, calls
IP_INC_STATS_BH with an incorrect argument, which allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and
hang) via long IP packets, possibly related to the ip_defrag function.
