I have the feeling that allocslip in dslip package  has overflow
in it, (since it's setuid it should bring a rootshell with careful

Here's how i tested it:
pakage Dslip, version 2.03
The package is rather old, but I found it being used on some Linux
machines around.
 gdb allocslip

I downloaded it form, and it does
not seem to be vulnerable:
emsi:~/hack/dslip/slip/bin> ./allocslip b_s `perl -e ' printf "A" x 300'`

Or even:
emsi:~/hack/dslip/slip/bin> ./allocslip b_s `perl -e ' printf "A" x 6000'`

It does NOT segfault (my system is Slackware 3.4 with 2.0.34 Kernel).
So it was fixed or is not vulnerable at all (I tested it on both -
precompiled and compiled myself).
