/* Linux Kernel <= 2.6.37 local kernel DoS (CVE-2010-4165)
 * =======================================================
 * A divide by 0 error occurs in tcp_select_initial_window
 * when processing user supplied TCP_MAXSEG facilitating a
 * local denial-of-service condition (kernel oops!) in all
 * Linux Kernel 2.6.x branch (2.6.37 & below). This issue 
 * can be triggered easily with a call to setsockopt() on 
 * a listening network socket and then establishing a TCP
 * connection to the awaiting socket. 
 *
