Subject[PATCH] ipv4/ip_sockglue.c: copy msg_control optval from user to kernel space
Date
ipv4/ip_sockglue.c: copy msg_control optval from user to kernel space

In do_ip_getsockopt the char __user *optval is used directly in
IP_PKTOPTIONS for the msg.msg_control and not copied from
user to kernel address space. This produces a sparse warning:

warning: incorrect type in assignment (different address spaces)
expected void *msg_control
got char [noderef] <asn:1>*optval

Fix this by using copy _from_user to set msg.msg_control.
