The networking implementation in the Linux kernel through 4.3.3, as
used in Android and other products, does not validate protocol

cause a denial of service (NULL function pointer dereference and
system crash) or possibly gain privileges by leveraging CLONE_NEWUSER
support to execute a crafted SOCK_RAW application.
