Subject[PATCH 3.4 09/32] ipv4: fix possible seqlock deadlock
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

[ Upstream commit c9e9042994d37cbc1ee538c500e9da1bb9d1bcdf ]

ip4_datagram_connect() being called from process context,
it should use IP_INC_STATS() instead of IP_INC_STATS_BH()
otherwise we can deadlock on 32bit arches, or get corruptions of
SNMP counters.

Fixes: 584bdf8cbdf6 ("[IPV4]: Fix "ipOutNoRoutes" counter error for TCP and UDP")
