Bug in tcp_v4_hnd_req?

the following code in tcp_v4_hnd_req looks broken:

if (nsk) {
if (nsk->state != TCP_TIME_WAIT) {
return nsk;
tcp_tw_put((struct tcp_tw_bucket*)sk);
return NULL;

Shouldn't it put *nsk* instead of sk? This appears to be the cause of
weird crashes under heavy network load we've been experiencing ...

Mit freundlichen Gruessen / Best Regards
