Subject: inet: use bigger hash table for IP ID generation (backported to 4.19)
From: Amit Klein <aksecurity@gmail.com>

This is a backport to 4.19 of the following patch, originally
developed by Eric Dumazet.

In commit 73f156a6e8c1 ("inetpeer: get rid of ip_id_count")
I used a very small hash table that could be abused
by patient attackers to reveal sensitive information.

Switch to a dynamic sizing, depending on RAM size.

Typical big hosts will now use 128x more storage (2 MB)
to get a similar increase in security and reduction
of hash collisions.

As a bonus, use of alloc_large_system_hash() spreads
allocated memory among all NUMA nodes.

Fixes: 73f156a6e8c1 ("inetpeer: get rid of ip_id_count")
