Subject: CVE request: Linux panic on fragemented IPv6 traffic (icmp6_send)


The linux kernel contains a bug where a fragmented IPv6 packet causes a
panic after a timeout (seems to be roughly 60 seconds). This can be
triggered remotely via the internet and results in a DoS (kernel panic).


This is fixed by commit 79dc7e3f1cd323be4c81aa1a94faa1b3ed987fb2
