That is not true, 2.2.9-ac1 came out before the DOS was discovered.
Hmm... so why is the fix there? Perhaps it the bug wasn't there at all.
The excerpt below is from the net/ipv4/ip_options.c from -ac1:

	if (skb) {
		icmp_send(skb, ICMP_PARAMETERPROB, 0, htonl((pp_ptr-iph)<<24));
                               Removing that is the fix.
	return -EINVAL;
