heres a simple patch for the -s stuff just using the same method as with

Unfortunately fixing ping won't help because you can exploit it using UDP
too:(. BTW, the ping in 6.2 forbid me to use a size of the packet >=
65468 even as root. So I had to hack and recompile ping to reproduce.

Actually the bug is that the IP layer is checking that the iphdr+payload
is < 0xffff but it's _not_ checking that iphdr+optsize+payload is <
0xffff. So as far as there are no additional ip options in the packets all
is fine.

This is my fix against 2.0.38:

And this is my exploit I wrote to check the fix:
