This code has recently been reworked, but from my reading, that
divide-by-zero can still occur.  And given that the numbers in
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range are inclusive, the arithmetic in
inet_csk_get_port() seems to just be wrong?

So we have this, against David's current devel tree:

--- a/net/ipv4/inet_connection_sock.c~ipv4-kernel-panic-when-only-one-unsecured-port-available
+++ a/net/ipv4/inet_connection_sock.c
@@ -93,7 +93,7 @@ int inet_csk_get_port(struct inet_hashin

 		rover = net_random() % remaining + low;

btw, mime-mangled gpg-fancified emails are rather a pain to handle at the
receivnig end.  Good old text/plain works better, please.
