Subject[34-longterm 237/247] CAN: Use inode instead of kernel address for /proc file
Date
From: Dan Rosenberg <drosenberg@vsecurity.com>

-------------------
This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.
-------------------

commit 9f260e0efa4766e56d0ac14f1aeea6ee5eb8fe83 upstream.

Since the socket address is just being used as a unique identifier, its
inode number is an alternative that does not leak potentially sensitive
information.

CC-ing stable because MITRE has assigned CVE-2010-4565 to the issue.
