[PATCH 4.9 18/31] packet: fix reserve calculation




4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Willem de Bruijn <willemb@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 9aad13b087ab0a588cd68259de618f100053360e ]

Commit b84bbaf7a6c8 ("packet: in packet_snd start writing at link
layer allocation") ensures that packet_snd always starts writing
the link layer header in reserved headroom allocated for this
purpose.

This is needed because packets may be shorter than hard_header_len,
in which case the space up to hard_header_len may be zeroed. But
that necessary padding is not accounted for in skb->len.

The fix, however, is buggy. It calls skb_push, which grows skb->len
when moving skb->data back. But in this case packet length should not
change.

Instead, call skb_reserve, which moves both skb->data and skb->tail
back, without changing length.
