parentllc: fix info leak via getsockname() (diff)
dccp: check ccid before dereferencing
ccid_hc_rx_getsockopt() and ccid_hc_tx_getsockopt() might be called with a NULL ccid pointer leading to a NULL pointer dereference. This could lead to a privilege escalation if the attacker is able to map page 0 and prepare it with a fake ccid_ops pointer.
