A certain Red Hat patch for net/ipv4/route.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.18 on
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (deadlock) via crafted packets that force collisions in the IPv4
routing hash table, and trigger a routing “emergency” in which a hash chain
is too long. NOTE: this is related to an issue in the Linux kernel before
2.6.31, when the kernel routing cache is disabled, involving an
uninitialized pointer and a panic.
