capability could use this flaw to cause a denial-of-service.
* CVE-2017-5986, CVE-2017-6353: Denial-of-service when using SCTP socket with
A BUG_ON() could be triggered when queueing data in a full SCTP socket
while another thread disassociates the first thread from the socket. A
local attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial-of-service.
* CVE-2017-7308: Memory corruption in AF_PACKET socket options.
