3.16.7-ckt9 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Alexander Drozdov <al.drozdov at gmail.com>

commit fba04a9e0c869498889b6445fd06cbe7da9bb834 upstream.

skb_copy_bits() returns zero on success and negative value on error,
so it is needed to invert the condition in ip_check_defrag().

Fixes: 1bf3751ec90c ("ipv4: ip_check_defrag must not modify skb before unsharing")
