Exploitable memory corruption due to UFO to non-UFO path switch

When iteratively building a UDP datagram with MSG_MORE and that datagram exceeds MTU, consistently choose UFO or fragmentation. Once skb_is_gso, always apply ufo. Conversely, once a datagram is split across multiple skbs, do not consider ufo. Sendpage already maintains the first invariant, only add the second. IPv6 does not have a sendpage implementation to modify. A gso skb must have a partial checksum, do not follow sk_no_check_tx in udp_send_skb. Found by syzkaller. Fixes: e89e9cf539a2 ("[IPv4/IPv6]: UFO Scatter-gather approach")

Exploitable if unprivileged user namespaces are enabled.

Upstream-Patch is available.
