Subject[ 82/89] netfilter: xt_hashlimit: fix race that results in duplicated entries
Date
3.7-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Pablo Neira Ayuso <pablo@netfilter.org>

commit 09181842b000344b1205801df3aa5b726c03cc62 upstream.

Two packets may race to create the same entry in the hashtable,
double check if this packet lost race. This double checking only
happens in the path of the packet that creates the hashtable for
first time.

Note that, with this patch, no packet drops occur if the race happens.
