In response to Tomasz's question, I don't see anything that would
prevent this vulnerability in the Openwall Linux kernel patch. However,
and I'm still trying to find an answer to this myself, it may be that a
kernel that is compiled without CONFIG_IP_MULTICAST is not vulnerable.
I've been trying to poke around in the code to find an answer, but
haven't had much luck finding an answer so far (I'm not a kernel/systems
programmer by a long shot).
