Subject[PATCH 14/27] drivers/scsi: Use memdup_user
From: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk>

Use memdup_user when user data is immediately copied into the
allocated region.

The semantic patch that makes this change is as follows:
(http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@@
expression from,to,size,flag;
position p;
identifier l1,l2;
@@

- to = \(kmalloc@p\|kzalloc@p\)(size,flag);
+ to = memdup_user(from,size);
if (
- to==NULL
+ IS_ERR(to)
|| ...) {
<+... when != goto l1;
- -ENOMEM
+ PTR_ERR(to)
...+>
}
- if (copy_from_user(to, from, size) != 0) {
- <+... when != goto l2;
- -EFAULT
- ...+>
- }
// </smpl>
